Quinta De Ventozelo Touriga Nacional 2008, Doc Douro, Portugal, $18.95 (657452)
What a tasty, affordable number from Portugal here. Its like Willy Wonka getting spanked with a basting brush. Its got licorice, chocolate, and a whack of bruised herbs. Delicious bottle to enjoy with Elk blueberry sausages. Buy 2 or 3 as “a little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men”.
