2017 Esporão "Colheita" Red Blend Alentejo Portugal

SKU #1462094 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Colheita is roughly a 40/30 blend of Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon with the rest Aragonez, all aged for six months in tulip-shaped cement tanks (no wood). It comes in at 14% alcohol. This is an organic release. Dominated by black fruits, this is lush in texture and fruit forward, with enough structure to avoid seeming too jammy. It's the fruit you'll focus on, though. The black cherry nuances are delectable. There's enough structure to let it age a bit. It's a summer red and picnic wine, but it has a little extra distinction this year. It can hold reasonably well—there's a little bite on the finish now—but you probably won't be rewarded if you keep it more than a few years. (MS) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A silky smooth wine, soft on the tannins and rich on the black fruits, this is ripe and ready to drink. Produced from organically grown grapes, the wine is packed with fruitiness and balanced juicy acidity. Drink now. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

This blend of Aragonês (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon, and Touriga Franca from the Alentejo region 75 miles east of Lisbon proves a sturdy companion at the table. Zesty notes of ripe raspberry, dried cherry, and fresh plums combine with accents of clove, black tea, brick dust, red rose, leather, and tobacco to form an admirably rustic profile. Possessing ample tannin and countryside character, it positively cries out for service with fatty Portuguese/Spanish sausages and meaty stews. Fans of Carignan will find a lot to love in this tasty and unpretentious bottling.
