Winemaker's Notes:

Callabriga Douro Red 2009 is a lively wine with a red hue and shades of purple. It has complex aromas dominated by notes of ripe red fruits, dry figs, aromatic herbs and exotic wood. Dense, balanced, with smooth and firm tannins, its finish is dominated by fresh fruit flavors.

Delicious with meat and aromatic seasoning. Try it with roast leg of lamb and rosemary.

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.
