Grao Vasco Dao 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Imported by: Evaton Inc. Ct. A blend of unspecified percentages of Jaen, Tinto Roriz, Touriga Nacional Bright, floral and simple on the nose though with nice depth to the vinous orange rind and white floral aromas. Smooth on entry, a bit lean but with a touch of flesh sticking to the the taut acid driven and dusty tannin laced structure. the fruit here is dusty and dry, austere with cranberry and raspberry undertones and a fine leathery, old book note of slight decay on the plate that adds complexity and a decidedly old school appeal here. The finish is modest, and this is basically a simple, fruity yet rustic wine but it’s very well balanced and has a lovely blend on intensity on the palate and well defined flavors. 87pts

A juicy red, with lots of sour cherry and wild plum flavors accented by peppery notes. Features hints of dried raspberry and cream on the complex finish. Jaen, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Pinheira, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. Drink now through 2014.

Light-bodied and crisp, with red berry fruit and light smoke. Perfect for pasta or grilled chicken.
