Portugal is the last great undiscovered wine country. With wines like this coming into the market, that may soon change. Fresh bright cherry and a steep mineral streak cut through the core of this wine, and flavors veer toward baking spices. A soft fleshiness manages to keep this deeply tannic wine from becoming too imperious. A touch of burnt vanilla creeps into the finish. Very interesting and very good.
