Portugal’s table wines are great values,
and we tend to think of them in the inexpensive category. These days,
some of Portugal’s more serious table wines are reaching our shelves,
and they still represent great value even at loftier prices. Quinta de
Cabriz is made from Touriga-Nacional (one of the main Port grapes from
the Douro), Alfrocheiro and Tinta-Roriz (Tempranillo). It features a
core of blackberry fruit, surrounded by compoty, dried-fruit flavors
with hints of earth and … well, you get the picture. It’s beautifully
complex for this price and a great value. Imported by Aidil Wines & Liquors, Newark, N.J.
