2008 Herdade Do Esporao Reserva. Alentej, Portugal. 14.5%

IMG_0924

Blend of Aragonez, Cabernet Sauvignon and Trincaderia

Milky, chocolatly, soupy, gloopy.

It just sits on your palate, no transition.

Some sour cherries in there trying to give this some interest.

No structure. Another disappointment with these reds from Portugal.

Beginning to wonder if these were transported properly to Australia.

No evidence of heat damage on the cork.

Approx $60 at The Wine Store in East Fremantle.

Tasted 8th November 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
