Casa Ferreirinha Esteve Douro DOC '18  **  $  

Deep flavors but medium-light body, earthy, tarry notes, needs food.

A more premium red, complex aroma, slick and silky, juicy to the max.


Quinta de la Rosa Douro DOC '17 *** $$ WORTH THE PRICE

Very much like a dry port, deep pool of complex flavors, masterful.
