Taboadella Jaen Reserva 2018 (Dão)
Overview: Jaen is a grape that is found throughout the Iberian Peninsula, but showcases a most unique, complex, soft and balanced expression in the Dão region’s granitic soil and higher elevation.
Tasting notes: Of a deeper and denser ruby color, and a floral and supple nose full of blueberries and sweet cherries, white pepper, all spice, chocolate and a bit of leafy greens. The mouthfeel is pure, fresh, and elegant, showcasing ripe and juicy fruits, silky texture and a lingering, peppery finish
Enjoy with: Meat or mushroom based pasta sauces, pan-seared duck magré and blueberry sauce, sweet spice rubbed red meat or Moroccan aubergine and tomato stew
