This is a great red table wine from Portugal. The ‘Lab‘ tinto 2011 with a eye-catching dog label, consist of a blend of Castelao (35%), Tinta Roriz (25%), Syrah (25%) and Touriga Nacional (15%) grapes.
The vineyards are located to the Northeast of Lisbon on mostly clay and limestone soils. Growing conditions are excellent due to the sunny climate and mild weather due to the maritime influence.
This red blend is juicy, smooth with plum berry fruit, medium tannins and a good mouth feel. Excellent value for the money.
Vinted and bottled by Casa Santos Lima, Portugal.
