Review of 2007 Pombal do Vesuvio

Happy Hour: 2007 Pombal do Vesuvio

Isn't it wonderful when you open a bottle of wine and experience love at first sip? Although this situation is rare, when it does occur, it's magical. It happened to me last Friday with this amazing Portuguese blend from the Douro Valley, the 2007 Pombal do Vesuvio ($28). It's a complex wine that hits the tongue smoothly with a rich dark-fruit flavor that's followed quickly with a lovely spicy finish. It has a clean mouthfeel and after each sip, I longed for more of the silky deep-ruby liquid. I enjoyed it with anchovy and garlic pasta, but it would be excellent paired with hearty meatballs, crisp-crusted pizza, or even barbecue.
