Jamie’s wine of the week. 1.2.19

Ciconia Touriga Nacional
(Alentejano) 2015
Regular Price: $17.99
Sale Price: $12.99

2019 New Year’s resolution- drink better
wine! And you don’t need to break the bank
in order to do so. Incredible value can be
found in our Portuguese section, especially
if your palate prefers complex, hardy red
wines. Ciconia’s Alentejano bottling is 100%
Touriga Nacional. Historically used as a
blending grape in Port, this bold varietal’s
potential for producing dry red
wines has only recently been
explored. A full body features
dark plum, blueberry, and dried
cassis with abundant tannic
structure, and toasty elements
from four months of oak
ageing. Have a glass alongside
venison stew, whiskey-glazed
wild turkey breast, or oven
roasted rosemary
root vegetables.
