Being a big fan of Portuguese wine in general, I wish I could share Steve's enthusiasm for this one, but I cannot (and my wife concurs). It certainly is highly aromatic, and there is fruit there to be sure, but the aroma includes a component that, for me, conjures up some kind of industrial solvent (which unfortunately lingers for a long time in the finish). And on the palate, there is a sour note that is not particularly pleasant. Not a bargain in my books, but happily, there are many better alternatives (some of them from Portugal) that don't cost a lot more.
