Manoella WIne and Soul Douro 2014

Well, it’s right there on the label: this wine has soul. Pretty audacious, when you think about it, but native Portuguese winemakers Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serodio Borges believe pretty strongly in the vinous soul of their land. In a way this is not so audacious, since great sweet wines have been made here for five centuries, but only recently have winemakers begun to concentrate on the quality of the dry Douro reds. Using a field blend of grapes sourced from the vines (some more than a century old) of the terraced vineyards of Quinta da Manoella, Sandra and Jorge make this full-bodied, fruity, well-structured red. Opulent as Iberian sunshine and structured like the ancient, hand-built terraces rising above the river, Manoella is a dark, plummy wine with blackberry fruit, cigar box, a hint of chocolate, a grippy texture swathed in soft fruit and spices, and the red-fruit acidity to make it complete and satisfying. Delicious now, it has the wholeness to go for another five to seven years in the cellar.

Pairing: Drink it with grilled teriyaki seitan, lamb kebabs with plum sauce, or stewed boar with mushrooms.
