Quinta Do Quetzal Guadalupe 2015

Alentejano, Portugal
2 days ago

Jane scored this wine: 90/100

A full-bodied and fragrant red blend from Portugal's Alentejano region. Layers of ripe dark berries, plums, oak, allspice and floral notes of rose and violet on nose and palate. Soft tannins and good balance, with lovely floral notes of rose more pronounced as it opens. Enjoy this with hearty meat casseroles, roast wild boar or game. Could cellar up to 5-6 years. Excellent value. Tasted Dec. 2018
