Portugese Wine

A friend of mine used to order belong to a wine club, and ordered Portugese wine by the case. I don't remember the name, but the flavor was superb. It was a warm and earthy red wine, with no bitter taste, but not overly sweet either. As I sipped it, it warmed me all the way down to my toes.
I spoke to my wine merchant, and he knew what the wine was, but said he couldn't get it.

Does anyone have any idea what it might be? I'd love to order some.

Constance, would you recognize the name if you saw it? If so, google Portuguese Wines and check out some of the listings, there are a lot of Portuguese wines.

I tried that, Andy, but I didn't see anything that looked familiar. All I remember is that it had yellow label. My friend has had a bad stroke, so I can't ask her.

Sorry to hear that. I wish I could help.

Maybe when Ironchef sees this he'll know more.
