2011 Quinta do Romeu Douro

SKU #1258441 Wine Enthusiast

 Big, bold and fruity, this is a warm and rich wine. The wood-aging has rounded out the natural structure of the wine, giving it weight and density. Black fruits burst out of the glass, although the wine will be even better in 2015. (RV)  (8/2014)

K&L Notes

A blend of organically grown Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, this is a lovely Douro red, with very pure, lively mixed berry fruit flavors, and a freshness that confronts the stereotype of these wines as heavy, impressive, yet chewier, more extracted wines. Quinta do Romeu tends towards a lighter touch, with less oak and extraction than many of its peers. All of their plantings are massale selections. Their is a lot of quartz and granite on their organically cultivated property, which along with the very high elevation (some of the highest in the Douro) lends great freshness and elegance to their wines. Given their great vine material, the excellent terroir and light touch in the cellar (no oak on this wine), Quinta do Romeu's 2011 is a delicious Douro red. As is the case with wines on the Spanish side of the Douro, this would be wonderful with anything hot off the grill. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

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.
