José de Sousa 2015

Dark red with some depth, the 2015 Jose de Sousa shows aromas of dates, chocolate, oak, some vanilla, fig, and spices. On the palate, the wine is fruity, velvety, with good tannins, some complexity and a good acidity. Serve slightly chilled and enjoy it with game and cheese.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on March 07, 2018

Wine Enthusiast : "Named after the Fonseca estate in Alentejo, this wine is impressively rich and structured. It has firm tannins that are balanced by dense black fruits and crisp acidity. A blend of Grand Noir (the local name for Baga), Trincadeira and Aragonês, it's a very complete wine, fermented in clay amphora and stone lagars. It's still maturing, so drink from 2019." 94 Pts.
