Today I'm going to make way to the first reader suggested tasting.
The wine in question is an Adega Camolas and was brougth to my presence by Afonso Tavares a faithful reader and colleague from Setubal a medium city 60 kilometers South of Lisbon, also known for plenty and good wines.
This wine has story: it is produced by an Afonso's friend's family in an 'adega' in the Palmela region near Setubal. The producer usually sells some of the production in the local market and open heartedly distributes some bottles to family friends. It turns out not all of this wine is immediatly drunk and some bottles are forgotten somewhere on a dusty cellar or basement. This happened to Afonso and he was glad to let me taste it. Soon you'll understand why.
Colorwise it has a quite faded red almost turning ligth brown what generally is not a good omen for what is going to happen in the mouth. Nosewise it presents some strong mineral aromas that sometimes make way to some hard vegetable notes.
On the mouth my fears have been confirmed: even though it shows some frail fruit - ligth strawberry - and even some vanilla it rapidly goes in to some sour and very acid tastes. It leaves the mouth dry and its quite unpleasant to the palate. If it serves any purpose it goes up half a tongue.
I believe that this wine has been way too much time waiting to be drunk - i believe it is a wine to be consumed while in its infancy mostly due to being an amateur production - and did not age well because... its not made to age.
I give it the lowest rank (1 out of 20) but with the remark that it should be tasted at maximum 2 years after its production.
