Winery: Lavradoes de Feitoria
Country: Portugal
Region: Douro
Category: Red Table Wine
Vintage: 2003

Tasting Notes:

The Color: A pitch black, very dark red

The Nose: Powerful nose, with black raspberries and ripe cherries, small notes of vanilla.

The Taste: Tastes of currants, dried red fruits; not overly fruity, but showing well. Nice structure to the wine with good legs and a nice, but not overly long finish. A very solid wine that paired well with a hearty Italian meal, but didn't overwhelm the food.

The Verdict: 8 corks

In honor of the legendary harrier Steve Prefontaine -- my vote goes to Oregon for the next trip.

I second that vote. But, I vote that way because I like the noble beaver and Portland.
