2003 Quinta do Carrasqueiro Douro

  • 2003 Quinta do Carrasqueiro Douro – Portugal, Douro (9/26/2006)
    12.5% alcohol – Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca
    Deep marroonish and very dark. On the nose wet slate, earth, leather, and white peppers, with black cherry and anise showing as it opens up. Strong acidity with medium weight tannins. The palate shows underripe raspberry flavors , sour, and is hollow. This wine is more delicate with only 12.5 alcohol, and while it’s nose is rich and inviting the palate seems to leave these flavors behind. With it’s strong acidity it did pair well with a lamb and parsnip dish I made.
    3 grape
