Most Vinho Verde is much of a sameness to me: crisp, light, simple, and *cheap*. This one stood out to us as especially good without being especially expensive and was a hit at our party. — 5 days ago
Red Douro blend recommended at Portugalia. Supposed to be a wine you see on many tables in Portugal. Very nice. Everyone liked it at our potluck.
On sale at Portugalia for 12.99.

Perceptually dry, acidity hides the sugar. 10% ABV. Strawberry and watermelon. Could be a click or two deeper in flavor, but, very pleasant as is. No visual petillance, but announces itself on the palette. Better as a stand alone sipper than with food. Would purchase again.

Spontaneous pull for dinner, needing something to hold up to rigatoni with sweet and spicy Italian sausage in homemade red sauce and a hit of medium dry Madeira (Broadbent), this is working just fine. 👍
Nose of a tannic raspberry, fresh cherry, some alcohol lingers and should eventually blow off.
Palate has generous raspberry, spiced/ripe cherry, green pepper, cocoa powder, cedar box and small amount of forest floor.
Great QPR with the price of admission at only $13.50. Good wine isn't always expensive. — 10 months ago
Really unfortunate to get a barrage of ads for unrelated products (video games) while trying to input this, @Delectablewine Delectablewine. I understand the need to monetize, but seriously, optimize your targeting a bit better than that. We expect a bit more intelligence from an app devoted to sharing and appreciating fine beverages. Overstuffing the free version--that many of us have been using for years--with unrelated ads to prod us towards paid premium only builds ill-will. I'm considering going back to handwritten wine journals à la Michael Broadbent, or even Instagram.
This baby Brunello is well-integrated, full of luscious dark cherry and leather notes. Medium finish. Should develop well over ten years. — 2 years ago
