Take this opportunity to stock up on some stellar Portuguese juice made by this master craftsman for only $10 per bottle: today's Six-Pack Feature, the 2017 J. Portugal Ramos Marquês de Borba Colheita Alentejo!
Alentejo is a large geographical area in Portugal located south of the Tejo River that encompasses about 30% of the country's landmass. Its growing season is, for the most part, hot and dry, but its diversity of soils and terrain make it hospitable to many grape varietals. Alentejo received DOC status in 2003, thus enhancing the region's reputation as a producer of high-quality wines.
The Marquês de Borba is a blend of Aragoñez, Trincadeira, Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Petit Verdot, and Merlot from the sub-region of Borba. The grapes are stainless-steel fermented and the wine is aged in second and third use French and American oak barrels for 6 months. It is medium-to-full-bodied, with aromas of red fruits and flavors of blackberries, cassis, and red plums, with notes of dried herbs, black pepper, and a faint whiff of woodsmoke on the finish.
