Castelão and Tinta Roriz blend from outside Lisboa. Very pretty "table red" - medium bodied, red fruit, perky acidity and a good utility infielder for dinner.

Just fine. Actually totally great. No superficiality, no empty ambitious artificiality here. Great natural color and acidity. Great natural texture. Great potential for long-term development. Hint of Loire. Old mature vines, structure is not complicated, but the foundation is solid. Authentic aroma and rare combination of depth and transparency. Traditional, artisanal, agricultural, biological, honest wine.

Enjoyed it, but not particularly memorable. My fiancé found it to be unpleasant.

wanted to like it more. but it's just kind of sitting there. a little flabby and un-compelling. not bad, really, just dull. second day a little better, but like a nice person at a group dinner you don't remember a single word from.

Had the 2011 vintage. Luscious, well rounded. A bit sharp initially but really opened up. Fruity, berry with some tannins. Would try to but if found locally.

Lots of VA. Full body. Lots of dark fruit. A liiiiitle too fruit forward but ultimately a good bottle.
