Portugal is where it’s at in the value wine market today. Inky, dark and brooding in the glass. The nose is of black berries, iodine. The palate is full of dark fruits, a hint of oak, sweet black grapes and an earthiness. The mid palate transcends that profile and adds some very integrated tannins to the mix. The finish is long, dry and inky. Black berry pie finishes it all off at the end. It is a blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro. 91 points, and an amazing 5 stars for this $11 marvel. To be bought by the case in my opinion. Drink till 2024. I’m having mine with grilled kale salad and London broil. Salut….
