Vinzelo Red Wine 2011

Yes! I love Portuguese wines! This Vinzelo is quite nice.It is a blend of 4 grapes and has loads of character that seem to pop up at separate intervals..jumping between : bold body ,tartness, unripe cherries and a hint of chocolate . I’m sure this wine would age well and probably be smoother if let sit a few years. Reasonable at about $8. I liked it.

The region has Portugal‘s highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC)Vinzelo
