2009 Boas Vinhas Tinto Dao

SKU #1108615 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This 2009 BOAS VINHAS is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz. With a meaty nuance on the finish, this wine has some strong flavors. At other times, there are lovely red fruit flavors, probably the Alfrocheiro asserting itself. Its mid-palate is solid but still elegant. It has a ripe feel to it. If you like its profile, this is a solidly built wine with a lot to offer, well balanced, well constructed and intensely flavorful. It is very nicely priced, too. Drink now-2019.  (12/ 2012)

Wine Spectator

 Supple and smoky, with a fresh kick to the plum and dried berry flavors, followed by mineral and spice on the finish. Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz. Drink now.  (8/ 2011)

This amazingly-priced Portuguese red is crafted from Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz. Grown solely from estate fruit and fermented in stainless steel followed by three months in bottle, this dry, elegant blend is dominated by delicate spice, restrained plum and blackberry fruit. Layered, stylish and approachable, with supple tannins and harmonious acidity. Slow-roasted pork would prove a fine marriage.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
