For a long time if you wanted to talk about quality wines from Portugal you would be talking about Port. This has changed over the last several years as more and more Portuguese wine makers have worked hard to elevate the quality of their wines while embracing their native grape varieties. The Douro Valley has been at the center of this quest for quality.
Vallado’s Douro Red, 2014 is a good example of the high quality available at good prices. It is a blend of Touriga Fanc, Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Roriz (also known as Tempranillo). It has a very nice nose with some flower notes, flavors of dark berries with a touch of earthiness and soft tannins. It is nice on its own and matches well with chicken, light pork dishes and cheese.
