Roquette & Cazes Douro DOC 2008
Awesome Portuguese wine... need I say more? Review below...
Pop and pour
Explosive nose of red and black fruits with a hint of barely toasted toast. Bit of pepper, sweet smoked bbq, and those green and white mints you grab a handful of when leaving a chain restaurant. Lighter on its feet and more acidic than the nose would suggest, this has both richness and vivacity. A strong showing for a wine that has more in common with an elegant priorat than a duoro DOC.
Overall Rating - 92
Drink now through 2019... Maybe a bit longer but I'd err on the safe side as its great now.
