Howard's Folly Reserva Tinto 2015

Alentejo, Portugal

Howard's Folly is a small producer of wine from the Alentejo region of Portugal. The winemaker, David Baverstock, is an Australian by nationality but long time Portuguese resident who is credited with revolutionizing the Portuguese wine industry by introducing new world techniques to old world material.

He has won the Portuguese Red Wine Trophy at both the 1999 and 2002 International Wine Challenges, as well as winemaker of the year (Portugal) 1999, the first non Portuguese Winemaker to do so.

Tasting Notes:

This wine strikes an earthy balance of black plums, blueberries, cocoa and balsamic. It has firm tannins and a very long but smooth finish.

Pair it with:

Darker meats and exotic spices bring out the deep, dark fruit notes in this wine. We think you should try it with lamb shawarma, gyros, Asian five spice pork and Indian tandoori meats.
