Produced from the incredibly popular wine growing region of Alentejo, Portugal, the Herdade Das Barras 2008 Reserva is a blend of 40% Alicante Bouschet, 40% Syrah, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This unique blend of indigenous Portuguese and French varietals is a rare combination, but a deliciously distinctive taste of the Alentejo region.
Deep garnet in color, the 2008 Reserva opens with aromas of ripe fruit, spices, and tobacco. The palate is elegant and soft with complex yet balanced flavors and a nice structure that promises excellent aging potential. Try pairing the 2008 Reserva with lamb and pork dishes.
