2008 Carm - Douro Superior Reserva



In recent months, the sales of red table wine from Portugal's Douro Valley has surpassed that of the fortified Port wine the area was originally known for. While we still enjoy a bottle of Port as often as we can, the red wines produced here are too tasty to ignore. The grapes use to make these Douro reds are the same used in the production of Port, with Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz providing the best results as in this outstanding Reserva. Aromas of violet, cassis, blackberry, and slate lead to full-bodied dark fruit and earth flavors that linger throughout the finish. Lamb chops, beef stews, and aged cheeses are all appropriate companions to this hearty red wine.
