Vidigal Vinho Tinto Reserva Lisboa, Portugal 2019Regular price $12.00
Owner and winemaker Antonia Mendes Lopes calls this wine “modern style combined with traditional.” We call it a fabulous pick for those who like well-balanced, full bodied reds under $15.
70% Aragonez (AKA Tempranillo), 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in stainless steel delivers dark berry fruit on the nose with a touch of spice. More of the same on the palate balanced by a smattering of earthy minerality, and a smooth finish.
Food ideas: sesame crusted sardines over lentils and garlic mashed potatoes, black bean burgers, duck ragu with soft polenta
