Churchill's Estate Douro 2007

Member Review by happyrobot:

Churchill's dry red wine from the same grapes they make Port with. 40% Touriga Nacional 30% Touriga Franca 30% Tinta Roriz Probably would benefit from a good amount of breathing. Seems pretty tight and intense.

I opened this on a significant day and I've already had 1/3 of the bottle, so maybe that effects my review. Also, I've been known to say that I've, without a doubt, detected parakeet feathers in the nose of some Merlots, so i would take my review with heavy scrutiny!!!! I aerated this wine before drinking and tried it in a tasting glass and a damn big bowled Burgundy stem for comparison. Old World High alcohol CANDIED* red and black fruits/berries with vanilla "Tempranillo's in there!"* Dry Might go well with roast and asparagus I like!! Anyway, the * is for the confirmation, that yes, there is Tempranillo in there. The 3rd varietal in the blend is Tinta Roriz (30%), aka Tempranillo in Spain. Also, this CANDIED quality is characteristic of Tempranillo for me and makes me choke up a little at it deepness. The sweetness in the candied nose does not make for a sticky sweet taste, however (thankfully!!) Bty, can you tell Tempranillo is my baby? Sigh... And I much preferred the damn big bowled Burgundy stem to the tasting glass. Hope you enjoy! LL
