Passion of Portugal Reserva Red

20131013-185407.jpgLCBO#: 146449
Price: $8.25
Made in: Alentejo, Portugal
By: Casa Santos Lima
Varietal: Syrah, Tinta Roriz and Barroca
2012

This inexpensive Portuguese blended red wine has Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Syrah grapes. There is a tag on the front label that says Or (Gold) Coupe des Nations Québec 2013 award. It has very nice aromas with mild leather, tobacco and dark fruits. The taste is good as well, but very mild at first. With time though, it becomes quite good. Light tannins, light dryness and plum notes. All of this make this one a superb red wine for under $10.
