Wine Review: This very good value wine from Portugal is dark ruby colored and opens with an attractive black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very approachable. The flavor profile is a pleasant mineral infused plum with notes of black tea and a touch of black olive. The finish is dry and its moderate sticky tannins are impressive for a wine at this price point. I would pair this wine with your favorite burger. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Ruby colour. Complex wood berries aromas with refined peppermint hints. Full bodied palate, tight tannins perfectly in balance with its acidity showing a promising development on the next years. Deep and long finish. Our Quinta do Gradil Reserva would pair perfectly with Chargrilled beef with baby cos, mint and haloumi or Spiced chickpeas with lemon and garlic marinated lamb.
