K&L Notes

A reference Portuguese producer based in the UNESCO heritage village of Evora, Cartuxa produces this wine with a blend of Aragones (Tempranillo), Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro and Trincadeiro. It is generously fruited and broad shouldered, but with balanced acidity to the darker berry fruits. A delicious Alentejo red, and particularly a great choice for fans of California Rhone blends.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
