Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional
The Full Review
This dark, fresh, and smooth red is the result of a partnership between a venerable Douro wine family (the Symingtons) and a Bordeaux superstar (Bruno Prats). The Quinta de Roriz is an old grape-growing property, with a history that dates back to the 18th century. This bottling is a blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinta Amarela, all indigenous Portuguese grape varietals. The wine's color is a deep purple, with aromas that include ripe blackberries, dark plums, and hint of spice. The texture is smooth and medium-bodied, with soft tannins, fresh fruit, and a clean, crisp finish. At $14, it's an outstanding value, and is sure to please anyone who's looking for a wine that's both fruit-forward and balanced.
