Quinta Dos Roques Encruzado Dao 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles, sattes Rot mit violetten Reflexen. Volle Aromapalette mit Duft nach frischer Eiche und dem umliegenden Zedernwald sowie nach Vanille und Dörrpflaumen. Kräftiger robuster Wein, recht würzig mit etwas Weihrauch. Feine Gerbstoffe, feine Fruchtsüsse. Intensiver Nachgeschmack, der überaus harmonisch endet.

A new winery was then built, combining the modem with the traditional, the science and technology with art. Side by side, in perfect symbiosis, electronic presses appeared alongside granite "lagares", stainless steel vats with k barrels, cold systems with underground cellars.
