South of Lisbon on Portugal's Atlantic coast, the Setúbal Peninsula is most famous for its long lived fortified dessert wines, but the sunny climate, tempered by cooling ocean breezes, is also great for elegant reds. Indeed, not far from the city of Setúbal is the State Prison of Pinheiro da Cruz, whose staff and inmates produce both red and white wines that have gained national awards for quality!Jaime Quendera, the Parker rated winemaker behind this sumptuous combination of native varieties Castelão and Alicante, says: "I love being able to create, blend and shape my wines - I work 15-hour days, always with the aim of producing the best wine possible." His juicy red is delicious with a pork and chorizo casserole, or chicken dishes.
