It was a birthday celebration at Texas De Brazil that put this wine on the table, it was the special offer. They were ‘giving’ it away for $56, regularly $70. It retails for $20.
Plums, cinnamon stick and blackberry on the nose. The palate is juicy with plum torte, cedar plank, rich tannins, juicy acidity. The finish is dry where the tannins are in full force but not obtrusive. Black cherry notes round it all out. 89 points and 3 stars from me. It did well with the abundance of meat served in various styles and cuts from a classic (expensive) Churascarria. Serve all day long with grilled meats. Salut…..
