5. Casal Branco Sociedade de Vinhos Sa Quinta Do Casal Branco Vinho Tinto Ribatejo (2007)

« Prev Next » 5 of 10
Previously available for $10.00
A bit dull on the nose yet fairly complex, offering up notes of grapefruit, herbs, a bit of poop, black olive, chipotle and black currant fruit, along with decidedly peppery oak notes and complex juniper nuances. While spicy on the nose, this is rather straightforward in the mouth with attractive, supple tannins and herb-framed wild cherry fruit. It's easy to drink with a touch of cocoa appearing late on the palate and dusting the light finish nicely. Not an intense wine but one that I find myself coming back to. The package is quite attractive in a classic, Old World kind of way. 86pts

  • 342828boccaccio Another great and under appreciated wines. Great with Beef. It is a must in the cellar.


  • 342828boccaccio A great little winery to visit in Portugal. They have a small B&B and you can dinner is available upon request. The grapes are foot stomped not machine crushed. Take your time to enjoy the wine and the view from the patio. It lives up to the 4 glass rating.
