Churchill Estates Douro (Portugal) 2007 (Majestic), #10.99
A blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz. Excellent modern Douro table wine from from the Churchill port house. Quite accessible and forward fruit in style. Deep purple colour, lovely blackcurrant nose. Juicy black fruits, spicy and forward. Smooth and rounded - possibly not as good as the 2006 but excellent value for money. Probably needs another year to be at its peak.
