I’ve always appreciated the Portage Red. Because of its consistency, approachability and affordability, this wine is often a “go to” BBQ selection at our house. On the nose, the 2019 is clean and jammy with aromas of cassis, plum, blueberry, graphite and dry sage. The palate is smooth and creamy (24 months of neutral oak aging) offering flavours of dark cherry, blueberry, BBQ sauce, cocoa, chewy tobacco leaves and a hint of Chinese five spice on the finish. The tannins are lively, and the complexity is surprising for the price-point. The soft texture is definitely one of the best attributes of this wine. 2019 is the very last vintage of Portage Red, so stock up and buy it by the case. (CWC, 20/06/23). 330 cases made.
