This hand-crafted wine is a blend of native Alentejo grapes Trincadeira and Aragonez plus a touch of Syrah for added body. The fruit is sourced from 1,000 ft high schist and limestone vineyards surrounding the J Portugal Ramos Vila Santa winery. Unoaked, it is fresh and fruity while maintaining a plush mouthfeel. Ruby red in color. This wine displays aromas of ripe red fruit and dried herbs. It is soft and robust with complex tannins. On the palate, the wine is spicy with a long finish. Pair with sausage and peppers, herb-roasted lamb, or beef stew.

“Rich and full of both tannins and black fruit, this is a dense wine. Its bold structure is cushioned by the juicy black plum and spice flavors, giving a wine that is fruity and age-worthy.”
