Churchill's Estate 2007 Douro

As dry Douro reds often are, this is comprised of a blend of grapes like that used for Porto: 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 30% Tinta Roriz.

Opaque purple color, dark to the rim.

Plum smell, strong oak.

Dry black cherry, plum, currant, blackberry, fruity/warm finish.

Very good bottle for $24.99, full-bodied.
