Ripe cherry, red berry and cassis on the nose with a hint of forest floor, black pepper and finely toasted oak round out the edges. Well balanced acidity creates a wine perfect on its own or to have with meals.
The 2018 Cabriz Colheita Selecionada is a blend of 40% Alfrocheiro, 30% Tinta Roriz and 30% Touriga Nacional, aged in an equal mixture of second use French oak and stainless steel for six months. It comes in at 13.2% alcohol and with four grams of residual sugar, still legally dry but slightly elevated. Only in bottle about seven weeks when tasted, this still seems impressive for the level. It shows decent concentration and fruitiness, a certain touch of silk for texture and fruit-forward flavor. It's not likely to reward long aging, but there is no reason it can't hold for a few years. Overall, this is a nice bargain.
