Ervideira Lusitano Selecao 2014

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £6 from a shop in Calais.It is from the Alentejano region of Portugal ie the southernmost one third of that country but my bottle does not have DOC status [the DOC is called Alentejo].My bottle is a blend of aragonex [called tinta roriz in northern Portugal and tempranillo in Spain] trincadeira, and cabernet sauvignon though I do not know in what proportions and spent 4 months in oak barrels. I started my bottle last night with my supper of beef stew. It is a full bodied wine with a nice deep red colour.There is plenty of a blackcurrant,plum,cherry and licorice style fruit with a lot of smoke,coffee pepper and spice especially on the finish. In short this is a wine with plenty of flavours that would compliment many foods'
