More about this wine from Douro, Portugal
This wine's region gets its name from the Douro river that runs through it. This part of Portugal is hot and dry, perfect for growing one of the country's most popular native red grapes, Touriga Nacional, which you'll find in this bottle! Touriga Nacional is a grape that grows in smaller quantities, making it all the more precious, so be sure to appreciate its presence here!

In the glass you'll find intense fruity flavors like a juicy blueberry pie that has been sitting by the open kitchen window as a breeze floats in off the lake. Tastes like resting near rolling green hills and weepy old trees that line a briny stream. Voluptuous fruit that will envelope your palate and keep you warm all winter long.
