Berço Do Infante Red Blend Vinho Regional Estremadura Reserva 2008

Member Review by Manoavino:

A friend poured this wine for me last night. I was hesitant to open it because knowing their taste I thought it would be an expensive bottle. I never open expensive bottles during the week. I tasted it and still thought it was an expensive bottle. Very nice. I don't know much about Portuguese wines but was convinced that this was a good one. Actually it was the 2009 vintage. It is a blend of Castelao and Aragonez grapes, both indigenous to the Estremadura region of western Portugal. It pours with a dark glistening purple color. It was rich but the flavors delicate black cherry, prune and smoke and spice. Verynice minerality, acidity and fine tannins. No after affects that some times come with inexpensive wine which it turns out this one is. Will look for this again.
