That is very common among southern Europeans but I've also seen it in central Europeans such as the Germans and in some English. It could be from over 1,000 years ago it doesn't necessarily indicate recent ME ancestry. I've seem people get the ME result and then go on a wild goose chase for an ancestor within the last couple of hundred years. In the case of Iberians the admixture occurred primarily in the last 400-1,000 years and most lines carry small bits of it and for most people that is beyond genealogical records.

OP have you tried the Gedmatch's chromosome painting admixture utility? If you look at the colors and place them in a historical context it can be revealing. If you look at the segments a pattern emerges certain colors tend to cluster together.

Those are very typical 23 & Me results for a Portuguese person. I'm not sure why you would bring up phenotype. It's not the same as baking were mixing specific ingredients results in a consistent result. Not all of one's genotype is expressed as phenotype it just doesn't work that way. Those percentages he mentioned can result in a wide array of phenotypes.

He also tries to explain away and dismiss the the estimates that aren't European, those are corroborated by Y-DNA and mtDNA which are solidly precise. There isn't a single individual that I've seen that is entirely 100% of something even with an estimate of 100%(fill in the blank) when one analyzes the chromosomes bits of different things appear.
