First glass had a bitter after taste. Next day after bottle opened this wine really opened up and tasted great.

One of my favorite value bottles- great berry notes, perfect with burgers.

Nice evening wine from Portugal - for me it was semi dry, berry tasting. As label says - it's blend of Portugal grape varieties.

Straight up with all the components. Soft and mild tannins on dark red berries. Opened 3/3/17. Had with fried pork and clams in Lisbon.

Ehh... Didn't expect anything good for the extremely low price... But I've never had a red wine from Portugal before. So there's that.

Too dry, but its port wine! So for $8 it's not great, especially when you could get much better wines for $10.99
