This port blend, apparently from the Lisboa region of Portugal, we enjoyed on Friday night (11/11/11) with steak, roasted potatoes, and an amazing asparagus with burnt butter and lemon sauce. The wine big shots offer the following:
“Lively aromas of pepper and berries. Plenty of spice behind the plum and red berry flavors that lingers into a long, soft finish. Medium bodied with rich texture and fresh acidity.”
I read that the Lisboa region–just north west of Lisbon in Portgual–is apparently mild and conducive to wine production. Though once known for producing low-quality wines, it has been restored with new grape varieties that today are regarded for their relative quality and price. We purchased from Bottle King in Ramsey, N.J.
