What a fine wine this is! Superb density and depth, with perfectly ripe fruit and fine tannin. Yet, the flavours never veer into overripeness and the wine doesn't feel at all heavy, thanks to good acidity. Certainly worthy of laying down for a few years. Super recommendation by JS and a great value for $20 (which, amazingly is being reduced to under $17 - go figure!). Portugal continues to produced stellar reds at affordable prices. Tasted July 2015.
Dusty is appropos. Dry and tannic, in the manner of a Barolo. This was good, but I really did not pick up any fruit notes. I think it may have benefited from another year in the cellar to round it out a bit. Definitely worth the discount bin price of $16.75.
Needs a salty steak to go with.
