Wine And Soul Manoella 2013 Douro Red Wine (Portugal),
$16.99-$21.99, 89 points, poured a bright Shiraz purple/red with a teary glass bowl and a clear wine ring.
The smells of toasty tobacco and black currant were soft and innocuous.
Medium to medium-plus body managed good acidity and early palate-mild supportive tannin.
Pleasant flavors of coffee, blackberry, and an accelerating tannic presence transitioned a moderately smooth libation into a rather strident one.
Finished long on plum, truffle, and a warm 14% alcohol and spice.
Paired perfectly with my Mexican cuisine.
