Very forward musky and smoky nose that's pretty pleasant on the palate with raisins and dried fruit. Nice acidity. Read more

Editorial Reviews for Alem Syrah/Touriga Nacional Vinho Regional Alentejano
Hugely herbal and meaty on the nose with plenty of oily, smoky oak, pencil lead, green olive and spicy black peppercorn accenting the tight red and black fruit. This slides right onto the palate with integrated acidity and polished tannins supporting early grilled meat and green olive flavors. Decidedly savory, there is no shortage of fruit here either. Sapid red berry and wild cherry fruit is topped with pink peppercorn spiciness across the palate. The back end reveals a lovely herb edge with a hint of something floral lingering on the moderately long and perfumed finish. The oak is present throughout but never takes the lead here and the lightly blueberry-tinged, savory fruit hangs on for the finish. Decidedly modern but also delicious with a hint of heat showing on the finale. 91pts
Very spicy nose, with hints of cloves and cumin. The finish is totally fruity, almost like a fruit snack. Strawberries and cherries run rampant in this Syrah.
Very forward musky and smoky nose that's pretty pleasant on the palate with raisins and dried fruit. Nice acidity.
Dark berry on the nose. Dark fruits on the tongue with a nicely balanced finish. Not too tannic, not too fruity...just perfect. I really enjoyed this glass.
Full taste, not dry at all. It goes down easily.
no, no, no. Very disappointed after reading all the reviews and tasting for myself. Raisin and cornmeal bread pudding on nose translates into dry, almost bitter experience upon taste. Musky finish too, akin to a poorly showered Euro basketballer. No, pass on this when shopping for new wine.
