Review date: June 27, 2017

Wine Review: This dark red colored blend from Portugal is very good and was being poured on the main floor at the Boston Wine Expo. It opens with a red plum and old oak bouquet with hints of black currant. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused black cherry with notes of black tea and a touch of black olive. The finish is dry and its moderate fine grain tannins stick around for quite some time. I would drink this wine in the next couple of years and pair it with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – Ken
