Blueberry and black cherry notes. Firm tannins on the finish, medium body. Takes a little while to open up. Went well with the pizza and dark chocolate pecans, especially. $10-ish at Phoenicia Market.

Not bad, but can't compete with Villa Regia. Wouldn't revisit. Blends Tinta Roriz, Touraga Franca, and Tinta Barroca.

"This dry wine is fruity, full of character, and well-balanced with a good finish. A perfect accompaniment to pasta, poultry, veal, lamb, or just enjoyed on its own."

A great red blend for an even better price! Dry, fruity, and flavorful; would pair well with just about anything, and balanced enough to drink on its own.

$10.99 from Barton food mart. Light but has lots of flavor.
