Capote Velho

I've known this portuguese wine for a while. When I first tried it some time ago, I liked it a lot. Now, I found it again and bought two bottles. It's still good, but this time Capote Velho wasn't as great a wine as I remembered it. Here are the pros: very inexpensive (just under $10 for a one-liter bottle); low on alcohol (11.5%), which makes it suitable for every-day occasions and decent quality. The cons: This new lot is just not as good as the first I tried. With not year marked on the bottle, it's hard to know if it's even the same wine. This one was good, but not great. A bit on the sweeter side. Overall, still a good companion for that quick lunch.
