Why is Portuguese wine so good? Because they've been making it longer than just about anyone!ԉ_ Why have you never tried it? Because they drink it all themselves! Try this unique and delicious Portuguese red blend - this wine has great balance - juicy and tasty but big enough for a steak! The grapes you've never heard of but if a Portuguese speaker pronounced them for you, they would be your favorites: Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet and Trinicadeira. The official tasting notes are: Intimately involved, garnet color, complex and intense aroma of red fruits with hints of vanilla and nut. In the mouth full body on the palate with hints of coffee and spices and a long-lasting, persistent finish. 2015 vintage, DOC Alentejo. Great looking bottle as well BTW!
