The story: Fado is a musical style that is uniquely Portugese — it's sung throughout the country in little cafes, bars, and restaurants. The sound can best be described as a Folk/Blues genre that reflects or creates a sense of longing... which is certainly what this wine will do to you. Throw on the summer tunes, pour a glass, and enjoy.
In your mouth: I'm filled with notes of black fruit and berries. Full-bodied with smooth tannins, my oak is flawlessly integrated. Essentially, I'm made to be the guest of honor at every barbecue.
