Aluado

Reserva Alicante Bouschet 2015

Really impressive #alicantebouschet; I’ve tasted the regular and this riserva is definitely a step up with luxurious cassis aroma and a deep purple velvet elixir in your mouth. — 2 years ago

Herdade do Esporão

Reserva Alentejo Aragonês Blend 2012

MICHAEL COOPER
9.1

#alicantebouschet And #cabernet really give this wine its identity. #alentejo heat and power with finesse. Black fruit and sweet spice on the nose, cherries and plums and cinnamon. Flavor profile on the palate in sync with the nose. Obvious oak influence. Tannins still a little scratchy. Can age for many years now until 2020 easily. — 5 years ago

Stones & Bones

Portugal Red Blend 2017

Big #touriganacional #tintaroriz #syrah #alicantebouschet 35/25/25/15% blend. First day it’s venting off the vanilla from oak but day 2 out of the wine fridge and it’s much more interesting. Purple black in the glass. Dense bramble fruit, slate and pepper aromas, solid acidity and moderate soft tannins avoids the flabby trap. The winemaker seems to be improving every vintage. #wsjwineclub — 6 months ago

Herdade da Farizoa

Reserva Alentejo 2014

MICHAEL COOPER
9.0

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 year ago

Icon Native Sonoma Mixed Blacks Red Blend 2012

8.9

I’m not that into this one. It HAS TO BE ICONIC. But Iconic leads to over extracted over sexed over. Just lacking finesse. Lacking intrigue. Don’t get me wrong. It’s delicious and I don’t mind drinking it and can age in the bottle but it’s missing it’s MOJO. #petitesirah #alicantebouschet #zinfandel and #carignane #sonoma #sonomacounty — 6 months ago

Crusoe Treasure

Los Locos de la Bahia Garnacha Tintorera

MICHAEL COOPER
9.1

#garnachatintorera #alicantebouschet I’m stoked because I tasted it blind and thought this is Tintorera! And I was right. Deep color. With Tintorera I’m starting to understand the vibe. It’s Syrah color and aromas (savoury, spicy and peppery) with the richness and juiciness of Garnacha Tinta. This is a Basque winery that I believe just buys bulk and commercializes their wines, or at least this series of wines. More or less 6€ a bottle in #Spain its a killer deal of a wine. I personally am not a fan of cartoon like labels. — 7 months ago

Tommasi

Poggio al Tufo Alicante 2013

Poggio al Tufo is a relatively new estate in the once swampy Maremma in coastal Tuscany. Tommasi, of Amarone fame planted vineyards here in 1997. The Alicante Bouschet grape is new to Tuscany, although getting more popular. This wine is a deep purple in the glass , delivering pepper, black fruits and smoke to the palate. Tannins are still a little harsh so this will benefit from another year or two in the bottle. Interesting wine from this interesting grape.
