Drank 3/19/19 over 2 nights.

Nose and flavors of blackberry, tar, and earth. Modifying my previous score as this was a bit less expressive and a touch more muddy than my previous tasting. Still, a very nice value.

3/21/7/4/3 +50= 88 pts.

Drank 2/21/19. Tasting event. Tasting pour.

Soil and black fruit on the lighter nose. Very smooth, dark flavors of blackberry, black cherry soil, and tar. Medium, very well integrated tannins. An incredible value for those looking for a big old world red.

3/21/8/5/3 +50 =90 pts.

Another insane value from this incredible wine maker and beautiful region. Full bodied, funky, hint of spice, elegantly rounded fruit.

Killer quality price ratio. Dark black fruits and nice tannic structure for a $10 wine. Portugal. Nuff said.

Enjoyed this bottle over spicy Indian food. Nicely balanced and light to medium body.
