Caves Vidigal Reserva 2008$8.99 -- 70 % Tinta Roriz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Castelao/ Periquita
Tinto Roriz (called tempranillo in Spain) ripens early and can take on many flavors and aromas—strawberries, raspberries, spice, leather, tobacco. Castelao aka Periquita produces intense and aromatic wine with red berry and floral aromas. Consisting of small bunches of little dark skinned berries, this variety typically produces smooth and well balanced wines with good aging potential as a result of its fondness for oak. Vidigal has youthful aromas of black fruits (cassis, blackberry, plum) ooze from the glass and fill your mouth. Spicy notes accent the juicy fruit on the palate while firm tannins form a solid core leading into a smoky smooth finish. This is a lively wine, offering raspberries and cherries with a touch of earth on the nose. The aromas continue on the palate, joined by yummy strawberries and spice.
