Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional
Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Pairing: This is a rare California Touriga Nacional. It was lighter than I expected, having read about the strong tannins in many Portuguese Tourigas. Even with it’s lightness, the oak aging resulted in a baked strawberry pie flavor, and the subtle tannins gave it enough complexity to pair nicely with the Philly Cheesesteak Bowl from Green Chef.
Scent: cherry and blackberry
Flavors: Strawberry pie, but some tartness on the finish.
