This is a blend of Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira and Cabernet.  Purple /ruby in color.  The nose is warm with black raspberries, raisins, dust and spice.  On the palate, this seems a bit cooler.  Cherries with dry earth.  Its a big fruity wine.  Some warmth on the finish.  There is some complexity here and light tannins.  It will take heartier foods.  These are pretty unique grapes so its not clear how well this ages.  Probably best to drink the next five years.  Still, for around $20, this is a nice value.
