From the region near Portugal's capital of Lisbon, LAB Red shows well, offering generous red and black fruit with fine-textured tannins. Spicy notes on the finish are contributed by four months ageing in oak. A stylish blend of syrah, cabernet and touriga nacional grape varieties.
Passion of Portugal Reserva
**LCBO products are subject to $1 convenience surcharge**
Deep ruby colour; blackberry, cherry and plum aromas with mineral and spice notes; dry, medium body; round black fruit flavours with a touch of spice and a soft finish.
Tasting Note This is certainly an intensely structured wine, but its name seems rather excessive for what are balanced fruit and juicy tannins. It has a smooth, minty character, bold berry fruits and a ripe full texture. The tannins and acidity will allow the wine to age further well into 2019, although it can be drunk now. Score - 90
