Portugal continues to supply some of the best red wine values anywhere. This is a blend of Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz from Portugal. Carnet in color, clear and bright. The nose has raspberries with some spice and a touch of mint. Light to medium bodied. No tannins. The raspberries continue thru to the palate. This is an easy drinking red that is nice on its own and will work just fine with a burger. Drink over the next few years.
This is and has been a go to value in outstanding wine for a long time now. The winery makes all different price ranges and this one is in the middle. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black cherries, slight black olives, spice and a bit of earthiness. On the palate, this is full bodied. It still has light tannins with plenty of black cherry fruit. Lovely texture. Nice finish. It is drinking well but can still probably improve a bit as it gets to peak. Let's say three to five more years until peak and another ten to twelve of prime drinking after that. It drinks well
This house makes some great wines that are quite expensive. This is there base value wine that retails for around $15. It is a very nice wine for the money as well. Purple/ruby in color though a bit flat. The nose has cranberries and boysenberries. On the palate, the fruit shifts more toward black cherries. Slight tannins. Good finish. Drink over the next five years. Will work with medium and heavier foods.
