Casal das Aires Alicante Bouschet 2020
The Casal das Aires Alicante Bouschet is a red wine from the Tejo wine region of Portugal made from old vine Alicante Bouschet. This artisanal, old vine wine (just 1,056 bottles produced) was vinified in traditional lagares and aged for 18 months in used 500l and 225l oak barrels. The nose is abundant in wild fruit notes, such as blackberry and blueberry, along with black pepper and cocoa. The palate is fresh, well-balanced with smoky charcuterie undertones and velvety smooth tannins. The finish is long and silky.
