Encostas Do Bairro Red Wine NV

Wine of the Month Club, $12.99

Aaron:  I enjoyed this bottle and have to say thanks again to my best friend Brian for the membership to WOM!  A mild, fruity smell with cocoa and plum led to an creamy flavor of chocolate covered strawberries.  There was a hint of sparkling salt and spice which was unique but not overwhelming, followed by a tiny bite on the finish.  Ultimately, this bottle has a great presence on the palate and won me over.  91 points

Teri: Flavors of berry, grapefruit, mild spice, and oak make this bottle unique and caught my attention upon first sip. The flavors are powerful and linger on the palate for some time after the original swallow. Just make sure to give this bottle some time to breath and release many of its unique characteristics. A great bottle to pair with creamy cheeses. 90 points
