According to Wine Spectator Portugal is “the most exciting wine place on the planet” and with delicious reds like this mellow Reserva, it's hard to argue. From the grand Casa Santos Lima estate, it's velvety textured with luscious spicy black fruit.
This rich and spicy, three-year-old Reserva is made by Casa Santos Lima, a grand Portuguese estate in the Lisboa region, just north of the capitol. João Santos Lima founded it in the 19th century and it has been in the same family for three generations. Diogo Sepúlveda is the winemaker today. He has worked vintages all across the world, including Bordeaux's prestigious Pomerol and California's Napa Valley. He is a talented winemaker, very gentle with the wines, but who relaxes in his spare time playing football or wrestling! Portuga Reserva is a mellow, silky, oak-aged blend of traditional native varieties, with Cabernet and Syrah. Delicious savoured slowly on its own, or with grilled meats or tomato and aubergine bake with mozzarella.
"Really enjoyable drinking. Smooth, luscious and very flavoursome - must get more!"
