A deep, brooding red wine blend from the Alentejo region of Portugal, the Herdade Paço do Conde 2011 Winemakers Selection is a blend of 60% Alicante Bouschet, 20% Touriga Nacional, and 20% Syrah. Each varietal lends its strengths to the finished wine - the Alicante Bouschet with its deep color and firm tannins, the Touriga Nacional with its structure, full body, and concentrated flavors of black fruit, and the Syrah with its lighter, jammy fruit and spice notes with softer tannins. Deep ruby in color, the 2011 Winemakers Selection offers intense aromas and complexity on the nose with a soft palate and flavors of plum and black cherry.
