This $15 Portuguese red is full of fruity, earthy flavors

Vinha da Coutada Velha Red Blend 2020

“This $15 Portuguese red is full of fruity, earthy flavors”



“Every time I sing Portugal’s praises for producing great quality and affordable wine, another example drives the point home. This is a blend of aragonez (a Portuguese name for tempranillo), trincadeira, syrah and cabernet sauvignon, so it combines native grapes with international standards. The result is a spicy mix of red and dark fruit flavors, anchored by an appealing earthiness. This wine is delicious by itself but really calls for hearty meats and sausages.”
