Last week we introduced the NakedWines.com business model when we reviewed the Jim Olsen Fair Angel 2012, an intriguing and delicious blend of Zinfandel from Lodi, Syrah from the Sierra Foothills and Carignane from Lodi, California.
In that post we explained how NakedWines.com funds wineries and winemakers directly through investments from their “Angels” — customers who put $40 into their accounts each month to be used by winemakers to create wines exclusively for NakedWines.com. These Angels also get to spend all of the money they invest, and they do so with deep discounts thanks to the elimination of middlemen and expensive marketing.
Today we have another excellent pick from NakedWines.com. The 2012 Montaria Vinho Tintobegins with pleasant and tart aromas of mixed berries and a little spice. Tasting the wine reveals loads of flavor and great depth, with more juicy tart dark berry fruit plus licorice and spice. This is a very tasty wine with a good amount of complexity, good acidity and a really high drinkability factor. It ends dry with more juicy dark fruit, spice and a bit of tobacco on the long finish.
