Callabriga Alentejo 2011

Once it has breathed  for a good hour to allow a slight bitterness to dissipate, this is an assertive, powerful young red from southeastern Portugal. It tastes of ripe plum, with chocolate and moccha elements. A really nice wine and, for a change, a great buy at $8.99. I would think it will go for some years, so I wouldn't be afraid to stock up on it.
