Afros Vinho Verde Tinto Vinhão 2010

A portuguese Biodynamic wine available at Appellation Wine & Spirits:

The grapes are grown in the appellation Lima Valley within Vinho Verde. The estate sits on a bed of granitic earth in a bio-rich zone where eucalyptus, acacia, and chestnut orchards are plentiful. The vines grow on trees in a pergola-trained system. I find their biodynamic wine to be vibrant, a little floral, carrying a long fruity finish. Some red Vinho Verde can have a hint of effervescence. I didn’t find this to be the case with Afros. It’s as dark as squid ink almost daring you to get to know its core being.
