2010 Aphros Silenus Vinhao Portugal

Wine Review: 2010 Aphros Silenus Vinhao Portugal What a pleasant surprise it was to taste this wine. Aphros Silenus Vinhao Portugal is the sleeper hit of 2014 wine discoveries for me.

2005 Conde De Vimioso Falua Sociedade Ribatejano Portugal Red Blend

Another good table wine from Portugal. This wine was made from a blend of grapes that you might not recognize—Touriga Nacional, Aragonêz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Trincadeira.
