Nice burgundy color. Arabic incense on the nose. Medium acidity. Dry. Alcohol. Fruity. Berries, chocolate and light pepper. Medium to full body. The more I drink Dao red, the more I like it.

Blackberry bramble with a woody earthiness and hints of sweet tobacco. The fruit shines through on the pallate and altogether off-dry it has a slight sweetness which compliments the flavor. Paired with a lovely spring bonfire! ($8.5) [5/6/17]

Vintage 2014 - Dão is a sentimental wine, a youth love. It was powerfull and spicy when I drank it in my youth. This wine is funky frivolous, silky structure, a touch of spices. Milk chocolate in the smell. Made of three grapes: touriga nacional, tinta roriz and alfrocheiro. Great wine to give your day a silver edge. Very good p/q.

Drinks reception wines are usually suspect. This was a pleasant surprise. Velvety texture, black fruits, decent finish. A little hollow and one dimensional but, judging from the helpful reviews here, it's a $10 wine from CostCo. Very good value.

Really good, and high value for the $8. Not as blended, balanced, but the fruit is good.

40% alfrocheiro
40% tinta-roriz
20% touriga nacional

Funky, musky nose that settles down into some nice floral red fruits, if not entirely dirt-trodden. Palate is smooth, bright and juicy. The acid keeps you coming back but the earth on the nose may keep you away.
