Dão, Beiras


Private Selection Dão Tempranillo Blend 2014

After listening to a @Levi Dalton on I’ll Drink To That, I was reminded that Portuguese wine still exists (outside of Port!) is crazily priced& this bottle by a woman vintner intrigued. 80% Touriga Nacional & multiple varieties including a “5% other”. The intrigue continued with a lovely spice & herbal nose, w some dark red fruit compote. Body is decidedly smooth, no hard edges, medium framed but robust, & with a lovely grip & dark red/black fruits. At 13$& change, a year in used French Oak & another 6 months in bottle, that’s a lot of wine & craft for your dollar. Didn’t find the oak monster intrusive at all, very integrated & subtle — 20 days ago

Dão Sul

Cabriz Colheita Seleccionada Dão Touriga Nacional Blend 1990

Good pairing with fish, grilled red and white meat and soft cheeses.
“This nice mid-weight wine hails from the Dao region of Portugal. It is a blend of grapes consisting of Alfrocheiro, Tinto-Roriz, and Touriga-National. Each grape is vinified separately, spends 6 months on oak, then it is bottled and cellared. It is defined by black currant, black raspberry, black pepper and a hint of earthiness. An elegant palate of blueberry, dark plum and black pepper spices that stay on the finish. A good match with a pepper-encrusted pork tenderloin on the grill.” Surdyk’s Spring Sale $7.49; regularly $11.99
Great with Sous-vide filets.
