Dense and showy. Ripe blackberry, black cherry compote, sour plum. Mineral and toasted wood spices abound in finish. Impressive.

This is made in a very approachable style and I can see why it's so popular. Red and dark fruit with some vanilla. Smooth with just a little grippy tannin on the finish. $25

The 2012 Esporão Reserva, DOC Alentejo, is a great wine for under $20. A blend of Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira, and Cabernet Sauvignon, it's an intensely red wine, medium-bodied, with aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry, spice, cedar, and vanilla. The tannins and acidity play well together after the wine is open or decanted for a while. This was a sample sent to me for review.

Red cherry. Bold. Needs some time after opening. The first and the second glass are quite different!
