Previously available for $135.48
Imported by Aveleda Inc. RI Dark and focused on the nose with wonderful floral aromas that recall candied violets coupled with layers of sweet, toasty oak and spicy, plummy fruit bound together with cinnamon and holiday spice. A touch soft on entry, then this really flows slowly across the palate with black fruit, medium plus body and plenty of underlying tannic grip. This is juicy with black cherry fruit but also hard with a hint of mineral spice and underlying wood spice. it’s a wine that should continue to age well for several more years but already is delicious and well balanced with a modest finish and the lowish acidity being the only low points. people should love this. It’s a fabulous party wine. 88pts

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Old fashioned for sure, and an everyday value for those of us who cut our teeth on old fashioned wines when they were just in fashion! I love wines like these and find them with some frequency in Portugal, a land of undiscovered values!
