LAVRADORES DE FEITORIA - 2004
Lavradores means "growers." This Portuguese delight from winemaker Jiao Brito e Cunha was named one of the "20 Best New Wineries" by Food & Wine Magazine last October. A blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, and Tinta Barroca.
Vanilla cream attacks the palate followed by red berries and plum. Smooth, silky with a dark red color and pleasant nose.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Bold and concentrated an excellent Portuguese value wine at around $10 a bottle.
