Herdade do Esporão

Reserva Alentejo Antão Vaz Blend 2016

Went great with the best cheese & charcuterie board in London! Was crisp, deep, and a perfect amount of tartness. Filled with minerals and citrus fruit, with just a hint of oak. Very well structured. — 2 days ago

Herdade do Peso

Colheita Alentejo Red Blend 2014

Pretty color of dark ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Soft on the nose with blueberries, black currants, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, leather, earth, wet rocks, graphite, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Fruity palate of strawberries, cherries, blueberries, black currants, bell pepper, green vegetables, wet leaves, black pepper, spices, dark coffee, dark chocolates, graphite and earth.

Medium finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice red wine from Portugal. Well balanced and spicy, with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.


I had the 2013 last year, and it was better. Needs 3 hours to open up properly. Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

Wine Enthusiasts 91 points. A blend of Syrah, Alicante Bouschet and Touriga Nacional. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels.

Slightly bitter, grapey, chocolate, later alcohol notes with more fruity taste. Good blend but nothing spectacular — a month ago

Adega Familiar Eladio Piñeiro

La Coartada Alicante Bouschet Aragonês

Super-good, not weird and actually pretty conventional, old-school traditional tasting. Maybe the wood is bit too much for the material. — a month ago
