João Portugal Ramos Alentejo Ramos Reserva 2018
|Brand||João Portugal Ramos|
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.
Bright plums and dried figs with a tobacco edge; lovely and fresh on the palate with a lingering finish.
While it is rich, this wine is also elegant. Ripe tannins are effortlessly integrated with the blackberry fruits, maturing structure and juicy aftertaste. Drink from 2021.
