Quinta do Encontro 2004 Bairrada

I aerated this vigorously and let it rest briefly after opening.

Opaque purple color.

Plum, black cherry, prune smell.

Fruity black cherry, berry flavor, tart, mild tannins, pleasant absence of the too-oaky character I've found in so many Iberian wines.

A very nice bottle for $12.99, not a showstopper, but just what I look for when pulling a cork for dinner: cheap and cheerful!
