LAB: a super regional wine from Lisbon
Vinho regional de Lisboa
Casa Santos Lima
SAQ Price: $9.20
Well, well ... attention, attention, I bring to the ring box of wines of less than 10 dollars a new and fabulous exponent difficult to beat! From the internationally recognized Casa Santos Lima wine cellar, LAB is a Lisbon regional wine produced with the main red grape varieties of the area: Castelao, Syrah, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional.
Lisbon is one of the most productive, polyvalent and heterogeneous wine areas of Portugal. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean brings what is necessary for the vines to magnifically grow thanks to the climate and soils and so to produce generous and high quality wines in all dimensions.
Don't restrict yourself with the prejudice of its price, I invite you with absolute conviction to discover this red wine of great body and personality. In the nose, intense aromas of plum jam and chocolate predominate. In the mouth it is ample, unctuous and round, very fruity and balanced. A wine that also had a short aging in oak barrel, which has given some elegant and enveloping smoky tones. The LAB, with no doubt, will become part of my daily cava, another one of my affordable pleasures ... (MLF)
