Confidencial Tinto Reserva 2015 A Great Buy from Portugal

Confidencial Reserva Tinto Red is a full-bodied red blend wine from Portugal. It's also a great buy currently at $6.99 at Costco and just a few dollars more at other wine retailers.
It's a well-structured wine that pours deep red in the glass. The grapes creating this blend are Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tinta Roriz.  Touriga Nacional is a low yielding grape used in port wine. But over the last few years, this versatile grape has been used to create complex Portuguese wine blends.

Wine Review - Mount Edward TED Pinot Noir 2017

This is soft, and velvet and as elegant as the label is eye catching. Ripe cherry and plum fruit, fresh and juicy, jostles with gentle oak and all this is brought together with a pinch of thyme. It is a bright and vivacious wine that needs no additional accompaniment to make it shine.

The wine is pale pink in the glass with extremely mild aromas of pear, lemon and grass. On the palate, the wine is tart with plenty of acidity and minerality. The finish is smooth, long, dry and creamy. This California Rosé was aged in neutral oak for 3 months with weekly lees stirring. The grapes included in this wine were hand-picked from some of the oldest vines in California.
