Dense and showy. Ripe blackberry, black cherry compote, sour plum. Mineral and toasted wood spices abound in finish. Impressive.

This is made in a very approachable style and I can see why it's so popular. Red and dark fruit with some vanilla. Smooth with just a little grippy tannin on the finish. $25

The 2012 Esporão Reserva, DOC Alentejo, is a great wine for under $20. A blend of Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira, and Cabernet Sauvignon, it's an intensely red wine, medium-bodied, with aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry, spice, cedar, and vanilla. The tannins and acidity play well together after the wine is open or decanted for a while. This was a sample sent to me for review.

#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.

Affordable, fruit forward and supple, but tannins make for excellent pairing with rich foods. Dynamite with the Korean fusion we had.
