Dão Cabriz Colheita Seleccionada, 2008

This has a Wine Spectator “Best Value” label on the bottle.  I don’t think a good sign—but we had our hopes up and there was BBQ on the table and it apparently warranted 90 points.  What can I say?  90 points?  I give it a big Seth and Amy SNL “really?”  My mother used to say if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.  Hmmm.  OK, point taken.  Here goes:

Better than Le Piat d’Or

Tastes like red wine

Didn’t kill us

 

Price: $18.99 at Liberty, $15.99 at Marquis.

 

Market Liquidity: Life is just too short to bother.
