Velvety smooth, deep, rich and complex, the Portuguese Messias Douro Quinta do Cachão Reserva has notes of ripe black fruits, vanilla, cedar, cherries and smokiness. It is savory and smoky, a dry finish, with a slight minerality and with medium tannins.
Founded in 1926 by Messias Baptista, the Messias winery has a rich heritage of producing and selling high quality wines from Portugal. It is based in Mealhada, which is a central city of Portugal, located in the heart of the Barraida region. Proud of its self-sufficiency, this winery sells a complete range of wines and spirits from its own estates in Portugal.
The Messias Douro Quinta do Cachão Reserva goes well with red meat, like beef or lamb, deer, venison and even delicate game proteins, like rabbit. You can enjoy a hearty meal of Roast Beef in a Fois Gras and Chanterelle Crust, Rabbit with Goat Cheese and Mint or even a Salmon and Goat Cheese Quiche.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
