Tram_3 Friends gave us a bottle of Portuguese red wine. How thoughtful! I am not joking; I love Portugal and the distinct flavour of Portuguese wines.

Vinho Regional Ribatejano, the label reads. So I turn it around and inspect the back label. A very good example of red Ribatejano, I read there. I hope so, and read on. Aromas of blackberry and rasberry, they promise, accompanied by elegant overtones of cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of cigar box.

Those labels always make me smile. Blackberry with cinnamon and vanilla overtones have by now become the industry standard for red wine flavour. The cigar box, however, I will give them. This is an adequate description of the earthly character that makes Portuguese wines unique.
