Tasting Notes

A deliciously decadent coffee rich, dark red fruit studded nose that lures you in with this incredible touch of umami. The palate has all of those sweet and dark notes. Rich black plum and sloes are washed with coffee and chocolate and that same umamirunning through the palate. This is crying out for rich fennel studded charcuterie or a huge hunk of grilled meat

More Info

Named after the bus route that José used to take as a young lad in Lisbon, the idea with this generously juicy, spiced red is that it's an ever-dependable, everyday wine, the sort you always think of with the same steady affection reserved for those simple, unassailably innocent experiences of youth. In José's case, riding on the #27 bus. Initially I thought the name sounded silly and didn't do justice to the wine, but the more I thought about it, the more it chimed. It's perfect for that special category of wine to which you can return again and again, and always be satisfied by how much pleasure it brings at such an uncommonly low price.
