Cerejeiras Tinto 2018 (VR Lisboa)

Tajo / Tejo river is born in southern Aragon, specifically in the Albarracín Sierra's (province of Teruel). From there it crosses the entire Iberian plateau, this is the regions of Castilla La-Mancha and the Spanish and Portuguese Extremadura. Interesting vineyards are expectants of its affluents, such as the Mondéjar, Méntrida, Montánchez, Cañamero, Alentejo, Tejo and the Lisbon region's wine areas. A river that has united in a bottle the most powerful varieties of Portugal and Spain (Touriga Nacional and Tempranillo respectively), a power that will be sustained with the Castelão freshness (typical of southern Portugal).

Very pigmented colour visually, bubbles when serving in glass and a garnet bright confirms the vintage. However there is turbidity. A ripe berry fruit and even compote in discrete intensity hints in nose. It evokes cheesecake or raspberry pie from neighborhood supermarket. Sweet entry in mouth, with a good load of residual sugars. Round, sweet development, with a good freshness lightening the heaviness. Mouth-aromas for blackberry and raspberry macerated in liquor fruits or jam of these fruits. The overload of residual sugars also prevails in the end eclipsing tannin and warmth of its 13% vol. .

We talk about rivers but sometimes we forget to do it of the sun, a sun guilty of many times bringing red grapes to a 15% probable alcohol percentage. A sun that is intimate known of all the lands that I have named in the first paragraph. Also well known in the village of Sanguinhal, from whose agricultural company this red wine comes out with 2.89 euros / $ 3.24. price. Surely this place halfway between Lisbon and Coimbra is quite beautiful, but I don't recommend this red wine, I'm sorry.
