2018 Grilos Vinho Tinto: Dão, Portugal

Tasting Notes

Looking for that go to weekday red? Look no further. Grilos Tinto show cases with deep purple hue. Aromatic of oak dark fruit like plum and blackberry bramble. Confirmed on the palate with black cherry, subtle hints on vanilla, leather and a little spice. A well rounded Portuguese red that pairs well with braised beef, game and roasted poultry dishes.
