Portugal is a leader in the production of outstanding red wine on the cheap. It is not uncommon to find a full-bodied, lushly-textured Portuguese red wine for under $10 (especially when you shop at Bin Ends!!!). The Douro region, in particular, is a treasure trove of this kind of juice. Its terraced hills (which give the grapes excellent sun exposure) and Mediterranean climate bring forth grapes that perfectly balance ultra ripe fruit characters and bright acidity; these grapes, in turn, make the kind of rich, decadent wines that we (and YOU) love. We are amazed that Portugal's wines can't be beat on the price-to-quality ratio - after all, this country's best kept secret has been out for quite some time. We don't look a gift horse in the mouth, though. We count our lucky stars and jump at every opportunity to buy these wines - and you should jump on today's Buy the Case Special, the 2015 Quinta da Cassa Tinto Douro, too. It ROCKS!

The 2015 Quinta da Cassa Tinto is a blend of Tinta Roriz (did you know this was Tempranillo?), Touriga Francesca and Touriga Nacional. It is aged in stainless steel for 8 months, except for a small portion of the grapes that are removed early to do a 3-month stint in a combination of French and American oak. This minimal use of oak ensures that the finished wine picks up some body and complexity without upstaging the wine's exuberant fruit or its terroir-driven characters from the Douro's schist-laden soils. Medium-to-full-bodied, it is bursting with cassis, blackberry and black raspberry, with accents of baking spices, black pepper and the merest hint of stony minerality.

Today's wine is food-friendly and aperitif-appropriate. Enjoy it with Tuesday night's meatloaf, bring it to a dinner party or make it a last minute holiday gift. It's an all-around, crowd-pleasing wine that tastes like you paid much more than $6 per bottle. Yes, you CAN enjoy decadent red wine any day of the week without going broke. CHEERS!
