2011 Compania de Vinos del Atlantico Valdeorras A Portela
Community Tasting Notes 39
March 10, 2016 - I found this revolting. It tastes like raisins and surgical gauze. I would have thought it was spoiled if others didn't say that it was supposed to taste like this.

February 8, 2016 - I bought this because it was described as soft and somewhat fruit driven. That fit the bill tonight, but it wasn't quite what I expected. On PnP there was a definite gamy note, and it had character, though fruit wasn't a big part of it. With time the game receded, the thin mid palate expanded nicely and the fruit grew. It's got an unusual taste I can't really place--tar? petrol?--that was a little off-putting at first, but now it's appealing enough that I'm having trouble corking it for tomorrow. Very much worth a try for a change from the usual.

September 2, 2015 - Needs a bit of time to open up, but once it's been breathing for ~30 minutes or more, it really blossoms. Smooth, lush, with some pleasant raisin sweetness.

September 1, 2015 - Nose is very dark blueberries with an alcoholic hit. Palate is spicy, darkly fruity, a bit of tobacco.
