Dao, a distinct region for the originality of its wines, has a unique terroir that, very regularly, gives birth to excellent wines. Grilos Reserva is intense, elegant and balanced. It pairs with a wide range of international cuisine dishes. Should be served at 18C.
The 2014 Grilos Reserva Red begins with an excellent and enticing aroma of wild berries, spice, licorice and floral notes. The wine tastes smooth and is full of lots of rich, dark fruit and licorice plus well integrated spice and even a bit of an earthy note. This is a very nicely structured and balanced wine. Touches of tobacco lead into the long, dry, pleasing finish. Wow, this is a lot of wine for just $8!
