Adega Mayor, Monte Mayor Reserva, Alentejano, Portugal, 2013
Monte Mayor Reserva
40% Aragonez, 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Alicante Bouschet
Plush and luscious, with beautifully skilful layers of plummy dark fruit, flinty graphite and soft, subtle lavender herby broom notes. The palate is polished and glossy, brimming with strawberry and cream, plump black cherry, laced with heady cedar wood and all beautifully threaded with a shimmering acidity.
