I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

2002 Quinta do Mouro Alentejo

  • 2002 Quinta do Mouro Alentejo – Portugal, Alentejo, Estremoz, Alentejo (4/20/2006)
    Deep dark purple with hints of red. Just opened and very closed with chokecherry notes, basalmic, pepper, earth and smoke. Tannins are big and firm yet very fine. Medium acidity helps frame the flavors of blackpepper, anise, chokecherry, black cherry, and some wood. Big wine needing a few years to calm down.

    3.5 grape
