Grao Vasco Dão Tinto 2009
Grão Vasco Dão Red 2009 is a medium intensity ruby coloured wine, characterised by the primary aromas of the grapes from which it is made, such as plum and black cherry, with some balsamic notes. On the palate it is a wine of great elegance and smoothness, with good fresh acidity, smooth and rounded tannins and a medium intensity palate aroma in which fruit prevails. The result is a remarkably balanced whole, with a clean finish of medium persistence.
good balance of fruit and acidity, light notes of oak, easy drinking, extremely good value
Three and a half glasses
An okay generic red; well balanced, but without much distinctive character. Still, for the price (under $10 a bottle), perfectly acceptable.
Nice deep ruby red. Smokey mineral nose with hints of blackberry and plum. Medium body with light faded tannins, nice balanced acidity and short but enjoyable finish. Flavors of raspberry, light oak,smoke and a light mineraltiy. The 12% alcohol shows a bit strong on the finish but overall is not a factor. C5+A11+T15+O6=87 
One of my favourites...and cheap.
