Details

Not your average Portuguese table wine, this red would please Barolo drinkers and old Burgundy fans, alike! A beautiful light red in the glass, it shows subtle secondary orange and brown hues. Tangy acidity, singed herbal elements, complex mineral notes – this is a bottle that begs for food. With notes of balsamic, black tea, and dried cherries pair with a dry-rubbed steak or pork roast.

This comes in its own wooden box when ordered in multiples of 6 and is currently 50% off its RRP.

Here are some of the reviews:

"The 1999 "Vinha do Fojo" (Quinta do Fojo) is intense and rather bright. There was bitterness on the finish with the opening of this wine. I rather liked how this evolved, however, as it became a gentler, sunnier wine, with a flavorful finish and liveliness, losing most of that bitter note. The mid-palate is elegant in weight, but by no means delicate. There is some really good, really flavorful fruit here, which keeps asserting itself as the wine airs out. I had my doubts, but I think this eventually made a believer out of me, as the tannins moderated nicely with air. It needed about an hour."
