Well balanced. Very nice — 2 months ago
Mix of ripe and tart red fruits. Lots of red candy things going on-- slightly anisey licorice, with a Spree/Sweet Tart tangy finish to it (dang I love that candy). Also brings in a bit of red pepper and almost a eucalyptus or sprucy element. A touch of sweet paprika
Tannins are soft and silky, acid is medium/medium plus. Alcohol medium. Magenta starting to take on just a but of Ruby hues. Finish is long and tangy.
This would be my dream wine if it had just a bit more rustic, underbrushy, stemminess and minerality. Really tasty.
Wine has Pedral, Sousón, and Espadeiro and has spent 6mo crianza-- really curious about the oak aging. I'm assuming old neutral barrels bcz there's no oaky spice or vanilla there.

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.
Loureiro, Trajadura, Borraçal, Espadeiro, Amaral, Vinhão, and Pedernã also known as Arinto

Fun fizzy rose. — 10 months ago
Nattyish. Straightforward, raw aromas of cassis, ripe plum. Lifted and high-toned from VA. Rather short finish, but the freshness and pop compensates. Needs a roasted haunch of beast to show at its best. — 10 months ago
So so yummy! Light drinkable wine with a bit of fizz. A new favorite! — 2 years ago
