8. Quinta Do Encontro Vinho Tinto Bairrada (2008)

« Prev Next » 8 of 10
Previously available for $10.00
Powerful vanilla and fudge scents on the nose with sweet roasted aromas of root vegetables and sun-dried tomato, topped with light oak tones and some sweet herbal accents. This is smooth as silk in the mouth with polished tannins and decent acidity keeping the dark, dried fruit flavors fairly fresh. There are hints of cedary spice over dried date fruit and a nice splash of wild fruit, but late arriving wood tannins cut that short and contribute some splintery vanilla to the back end and the short, dry finish. Shows a touch of heat. 84pts

  • 342828boccaccio A great little winery to visit in Portugal. They have a small B&B and you can dinner is available upon request. The grapes are foot stomped not machine crushed. Take your time to enjoy the wine and the view from the patio. It lives up to the 4 glass rating.
