This Portuguese Douro is a blend of 50% Tourgia Franca, 30% Tinta Roriz & 20% Touriga Nacional.   grapes. Begins with an enticing nose of blackberry bramble, sweet tobacco & baking spices with these flavors continue through the pallate.  The medium body with low tannins definitely make this a quaffable, albeit straighforward, wine. Another Portuguese wine providing great value and paired deliciously with gorgonzola sage gnocchi! ($13) [10/31/18]
