- 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.
