|Passarola 2014 Vinho Tinto back of bottle|
Take a leap into the great unknown with Passarola, named for Portugal’s fantastical “balloon ship” invention of 1709. The Passarola is a symbol of whimsy and adventure, and that spirit is embodied here. With notes of strawberry, rhubarb, and sage and a touch of tartness, you’re embarking on your very own journey.
Red Wine/ Product of Portugal: 13% Alcohol by Volume | Contains Sulfites
After reading the label more carefully, I realized that this wine seems to be available exclusively through WINC (please correct me if I’m wrong). If you aren’t already a member, I wouldn’t recommend opening a membership just for this wine, but if you are a member and haven’t tried this yet, I’d say to give it a shot (assuming it’s available, as it seems to be yet another seasonal wine that I’m reviewing at the wrong time– I think a good new year’s resolution for me is to work on getting these reviews up in a more timely manner!)
I gave this wine a 3-star rating- it’s good, not great, but it goes down smoothly and I found it very easy to drink. I wouldn’t say you need to stop what you’re doing to buy this wine, but if you’re looking for something new, I don’t think this wine will disappoint.
