Alentejo is one of the most well-respected wine regions of Portugal. Situated closer to the eastern border with Spain, rather than near the Atlantic coastline, this hot and dry region is best known for its red wines. Although in recent years many more traditional French and Italian varietals have been planted here (think: Syrah and Cab Sauv), this bottle is full-on Portuguese and a prime example of the region.

Tastes like watching the 2010 MTV Music awards, imagining how Lady Gaga smelled in her meat dress. This wine is big boned, savory, juicy and warm. Packed with savvy subtleties of punchy acidity and deep warm intensity. She has it all, from busty fruit to earth laced bell pepper notes and every bit of salty sea air brine in between.
Dark blackberry and over-cooked blueberry pie flood the glass, followed by a dusting of potting soil.

The taste of layers upon layers of tropical rain soaked earth make you feel like you are drinking in sepia tone.
