This blend is dark red, with crimson highlights and an intense, mature red fruit nose, with hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese herb that has sweet, warm balsamic aromas with a hint of earthiness). The palate shows great structure and a full-bodied elegance, with mature, round tannins, leading to a long, persistent finish. Serving Suggestions: Serve at room temperature with light meat dishes, such as pork, or flavorful, hard cheeses, such as Italian cow and sheep's milk cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastThis entry level wine from top Douro estate Quinta do Vallado is soft and full of red berry fruits that are laced with firm, solid tannins. It has weight and concentration, the ripe fruits balanced by a fresher side to the wine. With its tannins and touches of wood aging, it needs to age a few months. Drink from 2016.

Wine SpectatorA lithe, savory red, with notes of hot stone to the red berry, licorice and tarragon flavors, this is minerally, with accents of slate and white pepper on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 18,500 cases made.
