2012 Poças Douro Coroa D’ouro

This is a charming blend, layered and offering subtle nuances lending themselves to a broad array of food pairings. A soft nose offers up white flowers, pears, and Zweiback crackers. Apples, quince, and ginger snaps lead on the palate, finishing with lime and a touch of fresh ginger. Drink with crab cakes. Recommended (88). DH
