2015 Douro "Andreza" Tinto Reserva (Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas)

Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Douro Tinto Reserva "Andreza", Douro, Portugal 2015

40% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinto Roriz

FIRM PLUM & DRIED MISSION FIG, WISPS OF CEDAR & VANILLA

Representing a somewhat more modernist slant on the classically dark and elegantly rugged unfortified reds of the Douro valley, Lua Cheia's "Andreza" is named for a particularly stunning bend among the region's otherworldly (and very steep) vineyard-scape. The typical purple-black fruit and mouthfilling majesty are still very much in play, but the stern structure and dusty earthen tones which often populate these wines have been resculpted into something a bit more creamy and cosmopolitan. A delicious twist!

Serving Suggestion: Red-wine marinated roast pork loin w/ garlic, shallots, & white beans. Tender Moroccan stewed goat w/eggplant puree & lemony boiled potato salad.
