Daily Wine Recommendation

CROSSKEYS VINEYARDS Touriga 2015

Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

87 Points | “Recommended”

Crafted from the Portuguese variety Touriga Nacional (a common blending grape in Port wine), this plump, medium-bodied red offers savory aromas and flavors of black fruit, tobacco, nutmeg, and earthy minerality over a velvety palate. Oak (9 months) and tannins are well integrated, with mild acidity. A solid showing for this variety in Virginia. Fresh, appealing, and food versatile.  Drink now through 2022.  

12.5% ABV | 200 Cases Produced |  $35
