Casa Santos Lima Red Blend Portugal, 2019

This is a tasty red table wine that is widely available in wine stores for $8 to $10. I have bought a few bottles and found it to be a great bargain at that price. When I spotted a three liter box (the equivalent of 4 bottles) at Costco for $14.99, I wasted no time placing it my cart.

Deep ruby with purple tones. Still very young. Ripe red cherries and berries, plums, spices and black pepper. Has seen a few months in new oak but the fruit flavors are dominant. Medium to full body. The peppery finish reminds of a Pinot Noir or a very good Cotes du Rhone. In the bag-in-the-box format, I am looking forward to many happy returns.
