Roriz

The only classic variety of the Douro not indigenous to Portugal, Tinta Roriz is known in Spain, its birthplace, as Tempranillo. The name, from "temprana," or "early," refers to its trait of ripening early. Of the top varietals, Tinta Roriz is the most variable in in quality. High in vigor, moderate in productivity and highly resistant to heat and aridity, it grows best on hot, dry south-facing schist slopes, away from water, with shelter from wind. Such siting helps curb the vine’s vigor and also helps it avoid rot, to which it is susceptible. The Tinta Roriz produces thick-skinned, deeply-colored grapes not too high in acidity which yield masculine wines of firm tannic structure, excellent complexity and distinctive resiny fragrance. It constitutes 12.1% of plantings in the Douro Valley, the second most prevalent vine. Alternate Names: Tempranillo; Aragonez; possibly the Valdepeñas of California – Description from WineFueled

The aromas are of deep blackberry, cherry, hints of licorice and leather belt, and the finish has an ounce of booziness and it does linger....fresh! The flavors are more subtle and simple with fresh boysenberry, dark cherry, blackberry... Read More
