Jose Maria da Fonseca & van Zeller Douro Domini Plus 2008

Jose Maria da Fonseca & van Zeller Douro Domini Plus 750ml 2008       
Sku: 1692280*

DOMINI PLUS is a very limited edition wine and is produced strictly in exceptional vintages. Grapes come from 10 acres in the Douro Superior region of northern Portugal. The well-drained soil is composed chiefly of schist, and vines average 20 years in age.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep red Bouquet - Intense aromas of violets, cassis, spice and blackberries. Taste - Full-bodied and concentrated, with rich, black fruit flavors, smooth tannins and a long, persistent finish

 Wine Spectator 87 points (Jun 15 2012)
A ripe, muscular red, with accents of roast beef to the dark plum, baked cherry and dark chocolate flavors. The minerally finish features plenty of tannins. Drink now. 1,500 cases made.-KM
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jun 2011)
The 2008 Domini plus is a blend of Touriga Franca (65%), Tinta Roriz (20%) and Touriga Nacional (15 %) aged in new French oak for 14 months. Arguably the best Domini Plus I’ve seen, this shows finesse and impeccable balance, ripe tannins, focus and some power. It adds a layer or two of depth over the regular Domini reviewed this issue, and unlike the regular bottling it should age well and develop more character and a little complexity. Rather modern styled, its impeccable balance makes it very attractive and likely easy to drink at all stages of its life. There were 19,037 bottles produced. Drink now-2022.

Wine maker notes
Traditional fermentation is carried out with full skin contact at a controlled temperature of approximately 82F. The resulting wine spends 12 months in new French oak casks before bottling and release. Bottled in October.

Technical notes
13.7% abv 48% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), 22% Touriga Francesa.

Food pairing
Enjoy with grilled red meats, hearty casseroles and aged cheeses
