20% cabernet, 20% garnacha, 20% merlot, 20% tempranillo, 20% syrah. Portal is elegant and intense on the nose, with hints of ripe berry fruits and aromas recalling ripe peach, plum, apricot, balsamic, smoky and spicy tones.
"The 2004 Portal Roble is composed of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Merlot, Tempranillo, and Syrah aged for 6 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak before being bottled unfiltered. It is purple-colored, with an impressive array of aromas including vanilla, spice box, pepper, cassis, black cherry, and blackberry. Cutting a broad swath on the palate, this opulent wine has tons of flavor, ripe flavors, light tannin, and a pure, lengthy finish. Drink it over the next several years."
