Vinho Regional Peninsula de Setubal, Portugal

Wine Spectator 88 points!

Waterdog Red Blend is a delightful new wine from Jose Maria da Fonseca in Portugal. Loving, loyal and intelligent, Portuguese Waterdogs are a treasured breed originally from the southern coast of Portugal - near where our winery originates. This red blend is made of Castelão (70%) and Touriga Nacional (30%) and has notes of blueberries, black currant and baking spices. Perfect for BBQ, roasts, hearty pasta dishes. Open a bottle and enjoy the Portuguese way of life!

"Red plum and ripe cherry flavors are interwoven with anise, mineral and dusty earth elements in this medium-bodied red, with supple tannins structuring the well-balanced finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,200 cases made, 1,200 cases imported." - GS, Wine Spectator, 88 points!

Under the guidance of Domingos Soares Franco - the first Portuguese winemaker to graduate from the recognized University of California-Davis - a team of hand-picked winemakers are responsible for undertaking a wide range of research, studies, experiments and innovation that make José Maria da Fonseca a pioneer in much of what is done in terms of enology in Portugal and in the world. This is a job that starts in the vineyard, covers the entire production process and ends in the bottled wine made available to the consumer.
