Wine of the Week for October 9, 2006

Sogrape Vila Regia Reserve 2001 - $12.00
Style: R1

From the folks who brought you the ubiquitous Portugese rosé, we have a delightful little red made from indigenous grapes. Deep black cherry in colour, it shows aromas of tobacco, dried cherry, leather and an earthy note. Light but tasty, with an impression of sweetness on the uptake finishing dry, with a repeat of the earthy note at the end. Medium body and length, it's a very friendly wine suitable for pork roast, Antipasti, or firm cheeses. (LCBO 613950)
