About

90

A crisp and minerally red, with concentrated flavors of dark cherry, roasted plum and dried raspberry, layered with rich, spicy notes. White chocolate details show on the finish, accented by hints of pepper. Drink now through 2020. 208,000 cases made." June 2016 #46 Wine of 2016 The Dão region of Portugal is less renowned than the Douro, but quality is on the upswing. Situated in granitic uplands, the vineyards are conducive to making concentrated, minerally, dry reds. This wine is a blend of Tinta Roriz (known as Tempranillo in Spain), Touriga Nacional and the obscure Alfrocheiro, which brings deep color and fruity aromas to the mix. The wine aged six months in French oak. Cabriz consistently excels in the under-$20 range. 208,000 cases made.
