2011 Casa Santos Lima "Bons Ventos" Vinho Regional Lisboa
A juicy red, delivering vibrant and concentrated flavors of red raspberry, kirsch and dark plum, showing some peppery notes. Paprika accents appear on the finish. Castelão, Camarate, Tinta Miúda and Touriga Nacional. Drink now.
A blend of Castelao, Camarate, Tinta Miuda (also known as Graciano in Rioja) and Touriga Nacional, this is a lovely wine from vineyards not too far away from Lisbon. The flavors are of dark fruits, with just a hint of a subtly sweet licorice aspect tempered by freshness and some minerality. It is hard to believe that a red wine this tasty can still be purchased for under $8! (Joe Manekin, K&L Portuguese wine buyer)
