Red table wines from classic Port producers are where to look for value in Portugal. Symington Family Estates produces this wine from one of its great Douro Superior estates used to make the world’s finest Ports. Marked herbaceousness on the nose. Red fruit (cherries) moving into black fruit (blackberries) notes. Dark chocolate and mocha on the back palate add a layer of richness, making this the perfect “fireside” wine.
