Fizz

J. Portugal Ramos “Marquês de Borba” 2008 Alentejo (Portugal) – Big, wet fruit (citrus and stone, not particularly specified), fair structure, fair length. A perfectly pleasant commercial wine. (1/12)

J. Portugal Ramos “Marquês de Borba” 2007 Alentejo (Portugal) – Tight purple and red berries in equal measure, some licorice, and a bit of black olive, but fading and tiring. Yes, already. Perhaps a damaged bottle, perhaps just a wine that was best at release, but the structure is already clinging to life better than the exterior trappings of fruit. (1/10)
