Quinta do Quetzal Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Vidigueira, Alentejo, Portugal

Quinta do Quetzal is set in the heart of the Alentejo region on the rich slopes of Vidigueira, close to the oldest known Roman winery in Portugal and Spain. The grapes grow on soil rich in Schist, the local mineral stone. While the area around Quinta do Quetzal is generally sunny and warm, its positioning on the foothills of the Serra do Mendro allows cooler air in from the Atlantic ocean. These conditions lead to big variations in temperature, giving the grapes the heat to ripen and the cooling breezes to recover.

Tasting Notes:

This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon with beautiful concentration of flavors of black cherry, black current and baking spice. It is a dense and full bodied wine; well structured with dry tannins.
