  • {screwcap, 13%} Impressively deep and ripe aromas of plum and blueberries, not especially oaky, and with an authentic old-world earthiness to them. But the palate lets the show down, being relatively loose-knit and coarse in its flavours. Still, it's $12, so you can't complain too much. But still, there's an earthiness that goes beyond the soil here, almost into the fungal realm. About medium-bodied weight, but with a predicatably short finish. So-so, I guess. Better spend more money than try to find better at this price.

  • Dirt cheap Portugal drinking here in Australia at under $10. But, only really drinks like a wine about this price, and perhaps a tad higher, but still hard to complain. Ripe fruits, generic and simple (but pleasant) and a nice layer of chocolate emerges over time. If I was to be critical, the grape mix here is from 4 local varieties but this doesn't really shine through. Rather, just a simple and coherent mix of ripe fruits. Of course no problems with this given the price.

  • Decanted for one hour, served at room temperature. Color: Medium Red. Nose: Black Liquorice, Blueberry, Raisin. Palate: see nose. Finish: Short to Medium. Tannins: Low to Medium. Alcohol: 13 % showing. Medium bodied mouthfeel with initial dark fruit. Mid-palate adds black liquorice transitioning into a raisiny, alcoholic finish. Feels a bit watered down and missing character to get excited about. Overall a very average effort. 84-85 points.

  • Deep red color. Lots of classic Portugal in the nose: juicy dark fruits, woody spice and Port-ish figs and dates. Very open and promising nose. On the palate the wine is generous, round and quite full-bodied. Alcohol is there but it doesn't jump out. Ripe dark berries, dried figs, peppery spice and some vanilla oak. Not that tannic, but the tannins are young and feisty. Some acidity, but not that much considering the full body of the wine. Slightly bitter spice and woodsy oak in the mid-length finish. Easy come, easy go, tastes good in-the-between. Nice everyday red with above-decent quality. Goes well on its own but easy to pair with red meats and hearty stews. Definitely well worth the money at 9,78€.
