Below is the December, 2009 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

2007 Quinta do Portal

Reserva

Douro, Portugal

 

Quinta do Portal - Wine & Spirits 2009 Winery of the YearQuinta do Portal is a unique family winemaking company based in the Douro Valley of northern Portugal. Their vines have been grown in this harsh and beautiful land for many hundreds of years.

The Douro valley is one of the world's great fine winegrowing areas, well-known for its fabulous Port wines, but increasingly gaining fame for non-fortified wines. Using its unique grape varieties, together with their expertise in vinification and aging, Quinta do Portal wines have won an impressive number of awards worldwide.

The classic Douro red varieties of Touriga Nacional (40%), Tinta Roriz (40%), and Touriga Franca (20%) form the delicious blend that shows the true quality potential of this region.

Deep colored, with a bright, focused nose that is intense, spicy and a bit edgy. The palate has firm, dense, spicy structure with good acidity and lovely black fruit character. There’s a hint of chocolatey richness here. Aged in new French oak barrels for nine months. Structured, quite savory, and built to last!
