The latest offering from my wine club is this table wine from Portugal, which is making great strides in approachable, enjoyable wines outside of its normal Port offerings.

DAC Red was a lovely rouge color, with a fascinating nose full of menthol and licorice wrapped around the taut core of fruit.

On the palate, the wine was bursting with black cherry flavors and threads of licorice.  The finish tended toward the overly acidic, and it got a bit more so as the wine developed.

It was a decent bottle, but not my best from Portugal.
