Taborga Pais 2006 wine review by (PB)

As (NW) and I try to hit the 100 varietal mark I grabbed this wine because I had never heard of the "Pais" grape. For $7 on close out, just being able to check off another varietal was worth it.

I did a little research on this grape and found that it was a blending grape and that it would not make a good wine by itself (or 93% as this wine contained).

I was surprised. The wine was lighter in hue with cherry color and a rim of pretty watermelon red. It has a really musty nose with cherry fruit. In the mouth it is sweeter in style with pepper front and light cherry flavors. The finish is a little awkward but it was much better than I expected so raise a glass.
