Quinta de S. Sebastião 2011 Lima Mayer Petit Verdot (Alentejano)

This grape, which was until recently marginal in Bordeaux because of its unreliable ripening, does well in the hot sun of Alentejo. Almost too well in this dense, hugely concentrated wine. With dark chocolate and a Port-like character, the wine is not shy. It is redeemed from being excessive by the final acidity. Drink now. Roger Voss
