Paulo Laureano Singularis Tinto Vinho Regional Alentejo 2007
A blend of 70% Aragonez (Tempranillo), 20% Trincadeira, and 10% Alicante Bouschet, the wine is a dark, but not opaque, ruby that still looks fresh. Raspberry, cherry, and plum combine with mocha on the nose and palate. After some time in the glass, the initial off-putting rustic quality evolved to a more pleasant earthiness. Very well balanced, with acidity, tannins, and alcohol creating a solid, but not overbearing, structure for the fruit. The red fruits linger on the palate, as do the fine tannins.
