Quinta Do Casal Branco 2006 wine review by (PB)
Reviewed previously this $7 wine from Portugal is pale yellow with big rich sweet bouquet of light vanilla and lemon on opening but changes to apples and peaches with a day in the fridge.
Palate is off dry with forward acid, citrus and vanilla. Finishes a touch bitter but again improves with a day opened. Solid acid making it a good food wine. I am not crazy about it, but it is a good wine--just not my preference so raise a glass!
