Alentejano, Portugal

Herdade do Esporão

AB Alentejo Alicante Bouschet 2012

With an Aussie winemaker at the helm this is very reminiscent of wines from closer to home.
Think Barossa Valley.
American oak, sundrenched fruit, high ABV.

Herdade do Peso

Colheita Vinho Regional Alentejano Alfrocheiro Preto 2013

Deep purple in color with a dark purple rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, sweet black plums, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, graphite, chocolates, mocha, smoke, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, sweet strawberries, cherries, currants, oak, spices, earth, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, chocolates and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very enjoyable red wine from Portugal, with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with mild complexity and a tangy ending.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins, but drinkable right out of the bottle.

Peaking now. Not one for long term aging. I really liked the nose here. Good by itself or with food. I paired it with goat cheese and nuts.

Aged for 12 months in Oak barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.

Purchased in Lisbon and planned to bring home but decided to drink it on the last leg of our journey. Very well worth it! Smooth with a bit of ripe fruit and soft tannins. — 22 days ago
