This single vineyard Portuguese red is from the Murcas domaine established in 1714. Assobio is the hillside where the highest altitude, vertically planted vineyards reside. A blend of 40% Tinta Roriz, 40% Touriga Franca and 20% Touriga Nacional aged in oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine selected it as the #4 Top 100 best Buy of 2014. They scored it 94 points saying "Assobio is from a single vineyard in the Quinta dos Murças estate. A powerful, structured expression of Douro wine, it has black fruits, dark tannins, some subtle layers of wood aging and great concentration. Dark and richly fruity, it needs to mature before drinking. Wait until 2017." Limited!
