Quinta das Maias is the sister company of the famous Dao estate Quinta Das Roques. Both estates are run by Luis Lourenco, a former math teacher. The Maias estate is at a high elevation which is one of the reasons the wines have an excellent freshness. Luis purchased this estate especially for the Jaen variety. Inky dark purple in color. Aromas of blackberry and black cherries with toasted notes and mineral hints. Palate is dry and full bodied with more black fruit and dark chocolate notes. Well structured tannins and lovely long finish.
