Herdade do Sobroso 2008

15.5 / 20
Producer: Herdade do Sobroso
Region: Alentejo
Country: Portugal

A nice Alentejo from near the Alqueva, this red has a nice garnet color, with a bouquet where after the initial vanilla and oak impact, a lot of sweet cherries and raspberries appear in a nicely balanced bouquet.

Soft and balanced in the palate, as well, but showing a nice structure supported by balanced but very present tannins. It has a very fruit-forward approach, but a nice, fresh acidity keeps it interesting and inviting.

A good, middle range Alentejo made to be enjoyed as a great companion to meals.
