Marcolino Sêbo, "Visconde de Borba" Reserva, Alentejo, Portugal 201140% Aragones, 35% Castalao, 25% Alicante Bouschet PLUM, COCOA, LEATHER, SATINY TEXTURE Rustic yet refined; imagine Robert Redford on a horse, and you've got this wine. It's that perfect place where leathery aromas call up imaged of a sunbaked countryside, but pretty fruit and rich flavors of cocoa and sweet spice speak of sophistication and beauty. Typically Portuguese, and typically wonderful. Serving Suggestion: Something that you hunted yourself from atop a trusty steed. Rabbit stew would be a great choice.
