Cartuxa, EA Red Blend 2018, Vinho Regional Alentejano, Portugal
Tasting Note: A plush, Portuguese red blend with sultry aromatics.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of raspberry, blackberry, black plum, red cherry, boysenberry and rosehip.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied red blend has a slightly-creamy texture with medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and soft, medium tannin ultimately completing with a black-fruit-filled, medium-plus finish.
The midpalate is ripe-fruit-and-floral-filled.
A winning, Portuguese red blend especially for the price point.
Bottle Note: Aragonez (35%), Trincadeira (30%), Alicante Bouschet (20%), Syrah (15%).
