Natalie's Score: 89/100

From the Tejo wine region, Fiuza Reserva 2018 Alicante Bouschet is rich and inviting on the nose with blackberry, plum compote dark chocolate and spicy aromas mirrored on the palate balanced with fresh acidity, finishing long and elegant with rounded tannins. The wine was fermented in lagares -- large open vats or troughs usually made of stone - and finished in new French and American oak barrels with 14 months of ageing. Pour with ripe cheeses.

Alicante Bouschet food pairings: grilled lamb chops, veal breast roast, roasted root vegetable casserole.
