Our Portuguese red blend, Porta 6 is infinitely drinkable. Literally translating to "Door 6" this unabashedly smooth red is your entry way to a perfect blend of fruity, earthy and spice driven flavors. The Porta 6 captured my attention immediately. The whimsical, fantasy bottle decor illuminated my imagination and motivated me to explore the story behind this wine.
From the mountainous region of Lisboa, Portugal these grapes are grown in a sunny region with cool nights and in soil rich with history and nutrients. This particular vineyard is tucked away and guarded by mountains which shields the vines from coastal winds and allows the sunlight to deeply penetrate the vines to produce world class reds. The Porta 6 is comprised of 50% Tempranillo, 40% Castelao, and 10% Touring Nacional grapes. Curated in stainless steam drums this particular red blend grips to its flavors and isn't compromised or bribed by the flavors of the oak.
Crimson vibrant hues give the Porta 6 ruby-like virtues. Deep dark fruits like blackberries and plums dance in patterns around your wine glass creating the illusion of silk blowing in the coastal Portugal winds. The smoothness of this wine fingers you to its lair and deadens your natural guard against potential dangers. Sip mindful with this alluring hostess.
Aromas of violets and bursting florals surge from the glass filling your senses with earthly awareness. Flavors gift your palate with jars of jellied-fruits scooped directly from the earth's forests. Hints of spice are duly noted and body isn't lacking from this red varietal. Freshness and vibrance ensures the Porta 6 is a friendly and approachable drinker. Porta 6 is famous for the day "it broke the internet" and continues to surprise its tasters with an abundance of delightful characteristics, unforgiving smoothness, and an overall intoxicating fantasy of flavor.
