Answer
Isabel was a RosÚ wine produced by the company C. da Silva from Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal. They were also known by their Dalva Ports. The company is now owned by Gran Cruz, a Port company owned by french group La Martiniquaise. Isabel has been discontinued for long. They have a modern Dalva Rose made in Douro region.
