Another great valley in table wine reds from Portugal. A go to category for exceptional values. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with plums, blueberries and slight black raspberry along with a bit of spice and char. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, the blueberries come thru along with some black cherries and underlying char and spice. Good finish. This could use a bit more cellaring or air, but should drink well for ten to fifteen more years. It drinks well on its own and will work with grilled foods.
