First off, this is NOT a Port wine. That said, it is from the Dow family tree (Symington Family Estates), who are more than famous for their Port, and from the Douro region, Read More...
again famed in the world of Port wines. This is a dry red wine made from traditonal Port wine grapes: 55% Tinta Barroca, 22% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), 17% old mixed vines, 3% Touriga Nacional and 3% Touriga Franca. While famed for the fortified wines, just about as many non-fortified table wines (usually called Douro wines) are produced annually. And, as we find incredible quality at all ranges, styles and prices in the world of fortified wines, this Vale Do Bomfim 2008 is clear evidence that their table wines retain both the quality and worth found in their cousins: this is great juice!

Not sure what these grapes will taste like? Well, it noses like a Malbec with rich spice, graphite, pencil shavings and gobs of dark fruit, plums and a touch of strawberry tea. The palate is a nice mix between the fruit and spice of a Rhône with the body and structure of a decent-sized Cab. Bright mixed red fruits, chewy spice, black pepper, earth and plum finish with a brace of very good acidity. Barbecued meats, fatty cheeses, maybe a grand aïoli fête-- pair with richness and be rewarded!
