PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Today's feature is part of a company called Winemagnum, a labor of love established in 2011 by Portugal natives and veteran winemakers Carlos Lucas and Carlos Rodrigues. Both men have been making wine since the 1990s, Lucas in the Dão and Rodrigues in Bairrada. Looking to expand their lineup of cuvées, they joined forces; together they purchased and revitalized vineyards in their respective appellations and acquired property in Alentejo as well. The Quinta do Ribeiro Santo winery and vineyards in the Dão makes some of the crown jewels of their portfolio.

The 2017 Carlos Lucas Vinhos "Pinha" Ribeiro Santo Reserva Tinto is sourced from vineyards situated 1300 to 1900 feet above sea level, with granitic, rocky soil. Summers here are hot and dry, with wide diurnal temperature variations. These are the building blocks of great wines - and it shows here.

Fermented in stainless steel and aged for 9 months in seasoned 225L French oak barrels, the "Pinha" is a refined and elegant expression of the "the BIG, BARGAIN, Portuguese red". Medium-to-full-bodied, it has a nose of brambly black fruits and flavors of cassis, black cherries, and blackberries undercut by notes of wet stone, white pepper, and vanilla. Judicious use of oak, pliant tannins, and bright acidity keep this substantial wine light on its feet. Check out the press!

94 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This poised wine is made from Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Alfrocheiro. While the black fruits are dense, they are also elegant, yielding a rich wine that's balanced by bright acidity." (5/1/21)
