Vicente Faria Wines 2015 Animus
Douro Valley, Portugal
Animus is a recent listing at the LCBO that promises to be a barbecue season star. An attractive Douro Valley blend of Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca yields a deliciously juicy and concentrated red with a soft texture and easy-going charm. The balance of peppery spice, plummy fruit and sweet vanilla give this full-bodied red wine mass appeal.
