Forma DE Arte Do Tejo DOC Reserva (Portugal), $14.99-$16.99, 91+ points, poured a dense crushed blackberry color with a terminal silver ring.
Interesting aromas of purple grape, black pepper, and coffee were very good.
The medium-plus body carried good acidity with tight and accelerating tannin.
Mildly smooth texture managed a bright and exciting flavor profile with a bit of tang; strawberry, pomegranate, with a hint of plum, oak, and coffee notes were outstanding and refreshing for a red wine (I differed 90% from the bottle notes).
Finished long with spice, eucalyptus, and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
Varietals were fifty/fifty Cabernet Sauvignon and Tourig Nacional.
