"Flavors of beetroot and juicy fruit are juxtaposed in this structured yet fruity wine. lt has some bitterness and a hint of wood, and there is intense acidity on the finish." Roger Voss 4/1/2013

This grape is found predominately in southern Portugal, but also prospers in the poor, sandy-clay soils found throughout the Tejo region.
The grape has the ability to produce well-structured wines with vibrant acidity and an endearing rustic quality with notes of plum, red currants and meaty aromas.
Known to the Spaniards as tempranillo (and as tinto roriz in Northern Portugal), this variety makes rich and robust wines throughout Portugal, and is often found in blends rather than as a single-varietal wine.
Thriving in sandy and clay soils, aragonez produces smooth, fruit-forward wines with undertones of spice.
It is in the “Dao” region that this grape variety has greater expression, being used in many of the region"s wines and considered by several oenologists a high quality grape variety.
Cultivation of this grape variety, also known in the area of Douro as Alfrocheiro Preto, has successfully spread to the Alentejo and Ribatejos regions, as well as to the area of Palmela.
As Alicante Bouschet is very fertile, it is necessary to control its production, in order for the berries not to lose qualities such as color.
It is also important to control this grape variety’s harvest, since it is an early ripened and very susceptible to diseases, namely to rottenness.
Alicante Bouschet produces deeply colored wines, with aromas resembling wild fruit, ripened blackberries and spices.
