2002 Quinta do Carmo Don Martinho Tinto Alentejano
Producer: Quinta do Carmo
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: other red varietal
88 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2006
($12) Bright, medium red. Tangy redcurrant and medicinal cherry scents, with a subtle note of anise. Soft, gentle and sweet, showing red berry, cherry and sweet tobacco flavors and no obvious tannins. The silky finish offers a gentle kick of bitter cherry. This really shows its Bordeaux heritage (the property is owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild, owner of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild), and compares favorably with plenty of Medoc wines costing more than twice as much. It's also a strong effort from a difficult vintage.
