Quinta do Cabriz Dao Coheita Selecionada, 2014

When I bought this wine in 2017 ($6.99 from Costco), I knew it would age well, and it has. In fact, it seems to have put on some weight over the last six years.

Deep ruby with violet tints and garnet at the rim. Intense smells and flavors: cherries, red plums, balsamic. Medium to full body but only 13% alcohol. Tannins are still a bit aggressive (maybe even more than they were in 2017 and 2020) and I will be in no hurry to drink my remaining bottles. Peppery, spicy finish that reminds me of a good Oregon Pinot Noir.
