Alicante Bouschet

Alicante Bouschet, a grape of remarkable resilience and depth, offers winemakers a canvas rich in color and flavor. Originating from France, this teinturier grape stands out for its deeply pigmented flesh, imparting wines with a striking hue and intense concentration. Alicante Bouschet wines often exude notes of ripe black fruits, dark chocolate, and spices, supported by a firm structure and velvety tannins. While historically used as a blending grape to add color and body to red wine blends, Alicante Bouschet has increasingly found favor as a varietal wine in regions such as Portugal's Alentejo and California.
