Red WineWine Tasting Note: Quinta do Infantado Vintage, 2003, Douro, Portugal.

Dry with a slick tannic edge. Flavours are comples – you have a deep, rich blackberry base off which hangs blackcurrants, raisins, dark chocolate and biscuits. A distinctive minty edge too. Good long length. Alcohol 19.5%. Silver Medal at the 2006 International Wine Challenge.

Scribblings Rating – 92/100 [4 out of 5]

While it is fine to stick with the well known brands, especially as many are promoted and discounted in the run up to Christmas, the lesser estates such as this Quinta do Infantado are often worth exploring. Quinta do Infantando was one of the first privately owned properties to produce and sell its own wines. Their first single quinta (vineyard) wine was launched in 1979.
