Made from a blend of tinta roriz and caladoc, this wine has flavors of black cherry, dried fig and tart plums with subtle hints of vanilla. The 2008 Casa Santos Lima Quinta de Bons-Ventos ($9) is made from a blend of five different varietals and is full of ripe black and red fruit with pepper and spice notes.
