Quinta do Cardo Vinho Tinto 2006, Beira Interior, Portugal - $8

This wine is a blend of Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz, and I purchased it at Costco for $8/bottle - we had it for TV viewing night.

Aroma - dark fruit, black tea
Taste - dark fruit, black tea, moderate tannins

This is such a great wine for the price! I'll need to go back to get more! It went really well with chips and guacamole, falafel chips, and dark chocolate covered berries.

Update - July 26, 2011
Brought this wine for TV viewing night again.

Aroma - dark fruit, musty
Taste - dark fruit, tobacco, moderate tannins

Like! We had it with tomatillo/avacado salsa and chips.

This is an incredible wine at any price, also found at Costco. Was in Portugal last year and could not find a wine this good...
