Esporao Reserva White
I was able to combine two things that I've wanted to try into one interesting evening: exploring Portuguese wines and trying a new (at least for me) restaurant. Thanks to the organizational skills and somewhat obsessive passions of Jack Brice, I was able to sample a flight of Portuguese red and white wines while enjoying a hearty farm-to-table meal at Legume. The highlights were many, but I settled on the 2010 Esporao Reserva White as this week's pick.
This week's pick is available at your Fine Wine & Good Spirits store for $18.99
What Others Thought
While the Portuguese language does not exactly "roll off the tongue" this "charmer" made up for it in spades. "Rich " and "sophisticated", this complex white could stand up to the classic French whites retailing at more than twice the price.
