Joao Portugal Ramos Reserva
Revered winemaker Joao Portugal Ramos has earned countless accolades including 2000 Winemaker of the Year (Revista de Vinhos), 2004 Winemaker of the Year (Vin & Mat), and 2006 Producer of the Year (Essencia do Vinho). This hand-crafted blend of Trincadeira, Aragonez, and Syrah comes from Portugal's up-and-coming Alentejo region. It displays ripe red fruits and dried herb aromas, followed by flavors of crushed flowers, blackberries, plums, figs, and spices on the long, robust finish. With its medium-plus body and medium tannins, this wine showcases the dense, concentrated flavors of New World wines with the refined elegance of the Old World.
