Food Pairings for Quinta Do Zambujeiro Monte Do Castanheiro Tinto
Vinification:Brilliant red.intense and fresh nose of flowers, Dark Fruit, spices. Medium to full-bodied, dine and subtle tannins, very balanced. Tasty and juicy fruit , ends with fine notes of vanilla. Excellent to drink with cheese/ham platters or light dishes. Serve at 12-14 degree. Ratings: Robert Parker 89/100 The 2007 "MONTE DO COSTANHEIRO" is this very fine boutiques enrty level, but it is often charming and this may be the best on I've had yet. It is a kitchen sink blend of Trincaderia , Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Castelao and Cabernet Souvignon. Refined and elegant , with soft, velvety texture, this gains a little complexity with air and shows stucture and some backbone, too. Indeed,it can seem relatively powerful after it wakes up and airs out. It is quite attractive, starting sexy and flavorful, with touches of sweet oak on the finish from its 12 months in French Oak, but it ends with some character and intensity.
