Quinta do Mouro

Estremoz Alentejo Red Blend 2012

Nice blend of 4 grapes gives it some complexity. 2012 has enough age to soften the tannins. More bordeaux-like; not too fruity. Good fruit and earth balance. Not very long, but consistent. — 14 days ago

Good deep ruby color & distinct legs. Lovely rich nose of subdued fruit and ? Maybe cedar?. Full flavor a bit peppery with moderate tannins, blackberry, tobacco. Maintains character through moderately long linger. Very pleasant, esp good pair with meats.

Told the wife to open any bottle from the cabinet. I tried this blind, and had NO idea what it was... it’s an absolute beast. Too bad it’s not readily available in Canada. — 9 days ago

Herdade da Farizoa

Reserva Alentejo 2014


I didn’t find it particularly interesting when I tried it with Coravin, but that’s because it’s a full bodied wine with high tannins that should be decanted. Today I’m tasting it with a stewed roast and it is delicious. Deep ruby color = #alicantebouschet #syrah and #touriganacional warm climate #alentejo medium+ aromas with ripe red cherries, ripe raspberry and red plums. Balsamic touches and on the palate it’s dry with medium acidity and medium+ ripe tannins. Medium+ finish. — a month ago
