On sale at the Waitrose near my home. I don't like saying I'm "neutral," so I'll just put this another way...it had potential and was not bad at all. I would say that at the outset, based on the prominent English-language "Tagus Creek" label, I was expecting some kind of fruit-oak bomb meant to please middle-class types from the developed world; not at all the case, however. Pleasant dark fruit, pepper and spice (Syrah), and really above-average berry acidity (Touriga Nacional). The wine was balanced, despite having been matured in French oak (GRR!). This wine made me want to taste more of Portugal's Vinhos Regionais, and showed me the Ribatejo had the potential to be more like its southerly, Alentejo brother. Not much depth or complexity, but still a pleasing, pleasant table wine. The wine was paired well with the earthy, tomato, sweet-paprika sauce I made for the chicken.
