After listening to a @Levi Dalton on I’ll Drink To That, I was reminded that Portuguese wine still exists (outside of Port!) is crazily priced& this bottle by a woman vintner intrigued. 80% Touriga Nacional & multiple varieties including a “5% other”. The intrigue continued with a lovely spice & herbal nose, w some dark red fruit compote. Body is decidedly smooth, no hard edges, medium framed but robust, & with a lovely grip & dark red/black fruits. At 13$& change, a year in used French Oak & another 6 months in bottle, that’s a lot of wine & craft for your dollar. Didn’t find the oak monster intrusive at all, very integrated & subtle
