Confidencial Reserva Tinto 2014
Portugal – Lisboa
13.5% ABV
My Rating: 88 points

In the past 2 years, Costco has been carrying more and more Portuguese wines, most of which are both budget and food friendly. Confidencial is bold enough to pair with most meat dishes, but really shines with roasted chicken or pork. Wine Enthusiast gives this wine an impressive 92 points and quotes its list price at $27! Costco gets such great deals on their wine purchases, that this gem is a budget friendly $7.99, making it a great choice for a casual night sipper.

Medium ruby, medium bodied, nice balance of fruit, acidity and tannins.

Pair with: roasted chicken

Recipe pairing:
Half Roasted Chicken
Bundt Pan Roasted Chicken

From the winemaker:
“This quality wine was produced from a selection of the best varieties of this region, using traditional fermentation techniques, long maceration and oak aging period. Very aromatic with notes of ripe wild berry fruits, in the palate it is a fruity and full bodied wine with some oak notes and an agreeably pronounced acidity.”
