Learning how to rate. Dry but fruity. Little bit of smoke?

Nice, smooth dry red. Reminds me of the wine my father- in- law drank.

Red fruit with earth tones, not a lot of structure, decent acid. A lot better on day 2, more rounded with better balance.

Delicious medium-bodied read at a great value. Let it breathe for 30 minutes and it opens up nicely.

Solid wine that's well balanced. Very smooth upfront with earthly tones on finish.

Full-bodied & well-structured. Lots of flavors to experience. Part of the fun of my openness to any and all types of wine is tasting new varietals from countries like Portugal. give it a whirl and let me know what you think.

Small bodied, good flavor, thin tar and some dark fruit. On the edge of being stewed but not over. Great warmer weather red with meat.
