$14, 5 stars, 89 points, alfrocheiro, portugal, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, VWTC
Number 2 wine at our 11th Virtual Wine tasting was this Portuguese steal that came in at $14. An equal blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo). The tasters had the following to say:
Semi opaque, dark red. Nice legs but only 13%. Cigar box, earthy, fig, dried fruit, jammy. Black pepper? Dusty bramble. Sour cherry, earthy, fine grained tannins that hit on the finish. Light to medium bodied. Black tea, dry finish.
I enjoyed this wine but did not love it. One of the pros went huge with 96 points, I’m thinking 89. It was enjoyed by many at the tasting and bang for the buck- it was a hit. 5 stars. Drink till 2024. Salut….
