Portado Winemakers Selection Red, 2011

A previous bottle of this wine (tasted in December, 2016) showed peppery, spicy fruit--a cross between a Cotes du Rhone Villages and a fine Pinot Noir. Today, tannins are obscuring some of these traits, but I consider that a good sign. With a few years' time in the cellar, these traits will emerge again with more intensity.

I bought this for $5.99 at Costco. It is available elsewhere for about $10. If you see it, I recommend buying several bottles and having some patience. At this price, you have little to lose.
