Joao Ramos – Marquês de Borba 2016 – Alentejo

The nose is slightly tight and offers a small concentration as well as a fine intensity. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of wild berries, ripe cherry combined with slight / discreet hints of spices, olive, Sichuan pepper / gray pepper, racy minerality and a touch of imperceptible hint of eucalyptus. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, slightly tight, precise and offers good definition, a fine juicy frame as well as a (very) slight unctuosity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / crushed blackberry, fleshy cassis and small notes of candied cherry, crushed redcurrants associated with touches of blueberry, sweet spices, olive black / olive tree as well as discreet hints of chocolate, toasted oak and an imperceptible hint of almond. Good length.
