Winemaker's Notes:

CALLABRIGA DÃO 2004 has a bright red color with shades of violet. Lively and rich aromas of red fruit (blackberry, raspberry and cherry) enriched by nuances of aromatic herbs, resin and spices. The excellent balance of volume, firm tannins and lively acidity, typical of great Dão wines, allows a lingering finish and the expectation of great ageing in bottle.
My Notes:

About Sogrape:

Sogrape Vinhos was born of the will and courage of a group of friends. In the difficult economic and political environment of 1942, they decided to stake everything on the visionary talents of one man. This man had the vision to create and develop an innovative wine company with a difference, one which could make and promote Portuguese wines on a global scale.

The willingness to innovate and the ambition to do things differently - along with respect for tradition and the values of ethics and responsibility - marked the birth of an organization that has proved capable of preserving its founder's vision and adapting to inevitably changing times.
