Wine Review: This dark red colored blend from Portugal is a Good value wine. It opens with a smoky oak and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild black cherry with nicely integrated old oak. The finish dry and slightly prolonged. This wine is perfect for burgers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour/Condition: Intense ruby colour. Aroma: Subtle aroma of red berry fruits with balanced notes of American oak adding complexity. Palate: Rich flavours of ripe red berry fruits with good depth and a soft tannic
