Tasting Notes

A rustic red wine from Portugal that will remind you of old-school Portuguese wines as it's edgy, tannic and full of energy. This comes from a cooperative winery located in the southeastern corner of the Alentejo region in southern Portugal. Full of character and ripe at the core.

Staff Pick Notes

If you have ever tried wines from Domaine de La Romanee Conti (DRC), you would know that they can't possibly compare to Terras de Baco. And what a surprise--Terras de Baco is cheaper!
