Bargain Alert! The Alicante Bouschet grape is a grape that is planted around the world and Portugal is one of the best homes for it. The grape produces a dark, juicy red wine with spice and earthiness. Aluado is a dense and firm wine with rich plum and berry flavors that gives way to a powerful palate that is full-bodied, but smooth and velvety. This wine sees no oak so its fresh and fruit forward.
