Wine Review: This dark red colored blend from Portugal is a very good value. It opens with a black cherry bouquet with hints of dark chocolate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry with notes of plum. I also detected a touch of blueberry and minerality. The finish is dry and has subtle and friendly mild tannins. While this wine is not overly complex, it is tasty and will be liked by many. Serve with your favorite burger recipe. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Deep ruby with purple hues. Aroma: Intense aroma of fresh red berry fruits with spicy oak complexity following barrel maturation. Palate: Well-balanced palate with good fruit depth, mature tannins and balancing acidity. Long and persistent finish.
