Lavradores de Feitoria Vinho Tinto Douro 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are harvested by hand at their ripest with the intention of producing a well-balanced maturity. The vinification process occurs in stainless steel tanks w/ automatic pumping and vats, the intention being that, regardless of the process used, the quality constituents that are present in the skins of the mature grapes are passed smoothly to the wine itself. After gentle crushing and total destemming, the fermentation occurs with light homogenization, controlled temperature and prolonged macerations, in this way enabling a superior aromatic and polyphenolic extraction.

lots of licorice on the nose, along with some fruit and hints of bacon. great mouth-feel, very silky and smooth. light tannins and acid. awesome fruit flavors along with some notes of wood and Amedei Porcelana chocolate. a really good, easy-drinking wine. highly recommended... especially for $10.
