Food Pairings for Quinta Do Crasto Red Blend Douro
I admit, my first time to try Portugese wine. A very interesting, unusual (from my perspective) wine. Smell is of sweet dark berries - blackberries, blueberries, a little bit of spice, oak/pencil shavings and maybe an earthy edge. Taste of dark berries, with beautiful earthy smooth tannins, and a bit spicy. Well rounded and warming. Tannins firm and harsher on the back palate, but still well integrated. A lovely, well balanced wine.
Not light as are many Douro table wines I've had. This is a serious wine. A bit too tart in my opinion given its other attributes.... the balance is a bit off. But absolutely enjoyable for a $15 wine--I will buy again. Douro reds are such an interesting change of pace.
