Perneta Tinto Lisboa 2010

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.
