Good Portuguese reds are some of the worlds most underrated wines. Those from@the Douro Valley, particularly so. This is a cracking example from the Symington family.

Light, almost translucent ruby color, light cherry nose with a hint of vanilla and faint legs. Bright sweet cherry and plum taste, and very smooth tannins. I didnt think it was as spicy nor did it have a longer finish than I expected.

It was a great wine overall, great price and superior drinkability. Would recommend as a light, introductory red or for someone wanting to try wines from all over the world.
