$11 CAD at superstore. Not impressed, not a glorious wine.

Always looking for a drinkable red under $10. We enjoy what I call "Old European style" wines - to find them, we look for old-fashioned labels, with no animals pictured on them. This filled the bill, and I would definitely buy it again. On the lighter side, fruity, not too much tannin.

These wines continue to be the best dry red table wines made in Portugal. The 1990 Periquita exhibits good, clean, berry-like fruit in the nose, a ripe, rich, crisp, medium-bodied fruitiness, fine body, and a tart finish. This wine always reminds me of a medium-weight Zinfandel blended with a moderately intense Pinot Noir. Drink the 1990 over the next 2-5 years.

Notes of tobacco, cherry and cola on the nose... tastes of cola and cherry lightly touched with cassis. A clean and compact red for simple red meat dishes.
