Community Tasting Notes 4

    October 16, 2016 - I think I have a different bottle than what people have been rating. My wine was the reserva and had a different label and cost over $20. I bought this in Portugal 2 years ago. It has great balance of tannin acid and fruit. Nice lingering taste. Drinks very well now. I'd expect it to drink well for several more years.

    October 27, 2015 - Powerful with woody notes, along with raspberries and blackberries, and a note of lanolin. Savory with a bit of spice. Medium body with short finish. Velvety tannins. Excellent QPR.

    Very tasty with mushrooms!

    January 22, 2015 - Medium translucent purple in color, this wine (50% Tinta Barroca/20% Touriga Nacional/15% Touriga Franca/15% Tinta Roriz) revealed juicy red fruits of blackberry, plum and raspberry as well as violets. The mouth feel was medium bodied and brought more red fruits. The finish was somewhat abrupt but nothing was out of balance.

    Purchased for $10US, this was a well made wine that showed it's place of origin, showcasing the Portuguese varietals it is made from nicely. It's not very complex but a decent qpr.
