Food Pairings for Quinta Do Portal Colheita Douro
From Roger Voss: An elegant wine, its red fruits balanced with acidity and layers of wood aging. The style is serious, the ripe fruit restrained by the tannins. It will age well, giving an always structured, fine and stylish wine.
Good wine in a winter night, according to the wine expert Rochinha!
This blend is made of grapes that you might normally associate with port. Very dark inky purple color, and a really different nose of leather, spice, stewed plum/prune, and herbaceous/leafy notes. Also had a distinct and unique odor we both (independently!) identified as freshly baked sweet dinner rolls or pretzel buns! Medium bodied with notes of cherry and citrusy astringency overlying ripe fruit. Plush mouth feel, smooth tannin and good acidity...this wine has an interesting sweet/tart quality. Seems really well put together. A shockingly low price tag for such complexity, in my opinion. This wine paired fairly well with roast lamb leg stuffed with olives, anchovies, and rosemary and lemon roasted potatoes (not an easy one to pair). Great value for a most interesting wine!
A Douro 2007 Tinta Roriz ++, reasonable priced wine from Portual aged in French Oak. Somewhat acidic, dry Douro wine and somewhat tannic, with a spicy - plummy fragrance, kicking in at 14% alcohol. Rather nice for the price, 16.99 at the LCBO.
