Vinho de Mesa, Portugal. 13% ABV
Purchased 5/30/2013 at the Oakland, CA store
A little pop on opening, ever so slightly spritzy, although less than a Vinho Verde. The nose provides some pleasantly nutty toasty oxidation notes over light indiscriminate fruit, and the palate offers a creamy feel balanced by a little tingle and a slight green bite; a lingering umami and hints of herbs and citrus on the finish. Not gonna knock your socks off but a solidly drinkable wine, but drink now I think.
