Product Description

Red and black cherry, warm vanilla and hints of baking spices. Round and plush on the palate with loads of ripe red fruit, finished by toasty oak.

Brand Description

As best friends go, a good dog is tough to beat - like Blue, mascot of Roaming Dog Wines and official squirrel chaser of the vineyard. Seems like just the other day a couple of the field hands spied this scruffy old hound traipsing among the vines, with his tail on high-wag and an expression that said, "I'm home." And indeed, he's had the run of the place ever since. So when we needed a name for our wine, Roaming Dog just seemed to fit. Like Blue, Roaming Dog Wines are the perfect companion, whether it's a weekend brunch, your next tailgater, or simply chilling after a long day. Crafted exclusively with grapes from Washington's panoramic Columbia Valley AVA, they're easy going with just the right notes of fruit and oak.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
