Quinta da Garrida 2007
This Portuguese red, aged in oak for one year, is half Tinta Roriz and half Touriga Nacional, the latter being a variety that is usually made into port. The result is a wine which, while not actually sweet, is certainly full bodied, with blackberry predominating, and a mineral finish. Be sure to let it breathe for at least an hour. $9.99.
