Wine Review: This wine was the best red wine that I tried at this years Portugal wine trade tasting in Boston. This dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine wakes up and delivers a full bodied dry mouthfeel and shows off excellent balance. It is elegant and expresses delicious blackberry flavors. The finish is quite dry and its tannins sail on for quite some time. This wine is built for a New York strip steak. Enjoy this gem! - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense deep red colour. Intense red fruit, spiciness involved with French oak aging notes. Fruity and intense with good quality tannins.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Quinta do Coa 2006 Reserva.
