Zeferino Red Blend
We are thrilled to introduce a new wine to our international portfolio with the 2016 Zeferino from Portugal’s Alentejo region. Portugal’s dry reds are fast becoming a major player on the Old World red wine circuit and the Zeferino is a prime example of how far they have come. A classic blend of native varietals, 40% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca, and 20% Alicante Bouschet, the Zeferino has been carefully sourced from vineyards in the mountainous northeast corner of Alentejo where the cool, arid climate and rocky granite soils make for ideal grape growing conditions.
Deep magenta in color from the Alicante Bouschet, the nose of wild raspberry and blackberry evolves with hints of clove, flowers and spice as the wine opens up. The palate is lush with roasted plum and fig flavors, a firm tannin and a vibrant mineral streak. These intense flavors are sustained through the finish and endure with beautiful hints of grilled herbs, leather, and tobacco.

Buying wine used to be so tough with so many choices but since I’ve been working with Missy at Montesquieu my dinner parties have been the talk of the neighborhood! Missy always…
Joanne S. (Seattle, WA)
I was referred to Montesquieu by friends this past year. My wine advisor is fantastic and has yet to send me a wine that I didn’t love, and she is an absolute pleasure. Be careful, this place is dangerous!
Ralph T. (Schreveport, LA)
I just wanted to thank you again for the excellent customer service and for your generous notion to work with me. I am confident the wine will be outstanding and I appreciate having you around.
David A.(Los Angeles, CA)
Both my husband and I love to try new wines and Montesquieu lets us do just that. We have never been disappointed with what we get and we even bought some early gifts for the holidays…

My Montesquieu wine advisor has made me into the neighborhood wine sommelier. Everyone loves coming to my house and drinking all the great wines that she has recommended to me…
Kevin L. (Louisville, CO)
My wine broker has introduced me to some amazing wines I’m certain I would have not found of my own volition. I truly appreciate the efforts in finding wines I enjoy…
