- Bairrada, Portugal
- Ripe cherry, pine, plum
- Jordan's very favorite wine on the list!
A deeper expression of this varietal. Black cherry, raspberry, licorice, and spice, with some light earthiness combined with good body and acid. A red that is light enough to not overpower chicken, pork, or oilier fish, but has enough body and earthiness to stand up to the richness of darker meat. Berry notes and spiciness bring brightness and complement almost all autumnal seasonal dishes.
