What I’m Drinking Tonight

I’m trying to find some decent reds under $10, and the Bottle King in town had this on sale for about $9 I think.

Groval Touriga Nacional 2005
Many of the Portuguese reds I’ve had in the past have had a nasty, corky bite to them, so I approached this one carefully. The aroma was soft and cherry-like, and the first few sips confirmed that. There’s not a lot of flavors here, and that’s ok. If you want a simple, smooth wine with soft cherry and raspberry flavors than you could do a lot worse than this. There’s not much body or tannin structure, but again that’s ok; at this price point ‘character’ tends to mean ‘blech’. I’ll buy this again.
