Explore your dark side with Animus. Cedar brush and wild tart black raspberry on the nose of this full-bodied Portuguese red wine. Smooth and supple. Great price. Excellent party wine, especially those hosted for psychiatrists.

Food pairings: grilled pork ribs, burgers, chicken dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Vicente Leite de Faria, this robust Portuguese red wine sources grapes from the north-east region of Portugal in the famous Douro Valley. These are hand-selected from the Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca vines. Finishes satisfyingly long, especially for the price. Pair with meat dishes. Decant 1 hour. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
