Fonseca Periquita 2015

Member Review by vigna uva vino:

This was my first Portuguese wine and I really enjoyed it. This 2005 vintage is made from grapes grown on the Setubal Peninsula, it's the oldest Portuguese table wine. The blend of 70% Castelao, 20% Trincadeira and 10% Aragonez (another name for Tempranillo) is aged for a short time in oak (4 months). Ruby in color, with aromas of blueberries, strawberries and violets, this red has an intriguing complexity. There are flavors of licorice, plum, pomegranate, raspberries, and cedar... and as if that's not enough, a spicy cinnamon finish. There's an overall smoothness on the tongue combined with very soft tannins to make for a surprising value at $10 range.

Periquita (meaning "parakeet") is a flavorful red wine bearing the name of the most widely grown grape in the vast Terras do Sado region. A formidable structure makes this wine great with grilled meats or aged cheeses.
