DFJ Vinhos Portada Winemaker's Selection Lisboa Red Blend 2011

$9.99

#8 WE Top 100 Best Buys of 2014! There's a nice complexity to the plump, juicy, aromas and flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, and tangy plum with accents of crushed violets and lavender."A dark colored, dense wine that is rich and firmly structured. Aged in wood, it holds flavors of plum and berry fruits balanced with a fresh acidity. Drink from 2014.” WE 90

Fig and ripe red fruits along with hints of cedar on the finish. Although a bit jammy this wine is sure to be a crowd pleaser but still has enough complexity to be interesting to a more discerning pallate as well. Once again a great value from Portugal! ($6) [9/24/16]

Balanced but not complex, and not as fruit-driven as many Portuguese wines I've tasted. Softer, cherry laden notes and mild tannins, easy drinking. Day 2 a bit softer yet. This is good, but many other Portuguese value wines offer more depth of flavor. Drink it now, I don't see improvement with age.

Jammy and fruity. Medium body. Solid. Simple and straight forward.

Really confused about all the positive reviews. Probably a function of price. Found it to be jammy and lacking in any complexity. Really boring. Would make a good sangria base, probably. Won’t buy again. Even at <$10.

Mansplainer at Wine & Spirits said this is what I mean when I say “not sweet.” Nope. $11 in PA
