2014 Alentejano Tinto (Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas)

Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas, Tinto "Album", Alentejo, Portugal 2014

50% Aragonez, 25% Syrah, 25% Alicante Bouchet


A blend featuring three of Alentejo’s most prominent grapes, Aragonez (Tempranillo), Syrah, and the famously red-fleshed offspring of Grenache commonly known as Alicante Bouschet, this stunning value from the increasingly fashionable southern reaches of Portugal is both distinctive and almost universally applicable as a "house red" for all seasons. The ripeness and intensity of fruit remain tempered with healthy acidity which insures refreshment and food-friendly versatility. Encore!

Serving Suggestion: Black and red beans stir fried with tomato paste, cumin, diced scallions, & cilantro. Carolina hotdog-styled bratwursts w/ chili, slaw, and all the fixings.
