2008 Americo Nunes Seabra "Americo" Dão
This sinewy red delivers well-spiced, concentrated flavors of cherry, plum and wild berry. Notes of iron and dark chocolate mark the savory finish, with hints of white pepper. Drink now through 2015.
Bright mixed berry and plum aromas lead to a tasty palate. No, make that bright, lively and scrumptiously tasty palate. Smashed berries combined with lovely minerality, reminding one of the heavily granitic soils in the Dao, and granite’s ability to impart great freshness in wine. While the tannins grip slightly toward the finish, this adds to the overall tension and appealingly firm structure. Great value for the money in this red, particularly for fans of acidity, minerality, subtlety and balance in their red wines. Touriga Nacional.
