2014 Monte da Ravasqueira, Reserva Tinto, Alentejano VR, Portugal

This wine is a blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Touriga Nacional. It has a very deep purple colour with pronounced notes of blackberry, chocolate, leather, vanilla and spice. The palate is weighty and substantial with medium tannic grip and a long chalky finish. The ripe plum and date flavours are integrated with high quality French oak nuances. This wine would pair well with an aged Romano or Parmigiano cheese. Drink now to 2028.
