It's only wine but I like it

Portugal continues to produce some great values. This is a fresh wine, with plenty of character. An interesting blend of bright fruits, herbal notes and some of the evergreen/pine notes that DL notes. I find the oak nicely balanced. A fine value at $13.95, I recall buying this one sale at the local Vintages for just over $11...not many wines that are this good for that low price. Tasted May 2015.
