Red Wine

Dao Sul Sociedad Vitivinicola Cabriz Colheita Seleccionada Vinho Tinto 2005, DOC Dão, Portugal: Vintages Wine Panel: This Cabriz wine uses only local grapes; what gives it an interesting twist is the use of French oak barrels. This blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, plus Alfrocheiro is matured for six months in new French oak. The result is an intense, balanced ripely fruity wine with a fine core of tannin for balance. My note: A simple, rustic wine with dark red fruit aromas. Pair with: grilled leg of lamb. Drink: 2007-2010. 949974 13% XD 750 mL  $12.95 Score: 87/100. May 12, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
