BRANDJoao Portugal Ramos
A richly aromatic wine of black cherries, tar, mocha, and a hint of violets. On the palate, this wine's rich texture is balanced perfectly against a zesty acidity, and rounded out by well-integrated, fine-grained tannins. This wine begs for another sip as its mellifluous flavors develop well into the finish.
This wine pairs perfectly with choice cuts of steak, pot roasts, and hearty casseroles like cassoulet.
This is a ripe, wood-aged wine that also has plenty of fresh black currant fruits. Some firm tannins show that it is still young, confirmed by the fruits and acidity that are still fresh.
