FitaPreta

Preta Vinho Regional Alentejano Red Blend 2008

Notes of minerality and pepper and very easy on the palate. Probably would have been best to decant it beforehand but it settled down nicely. — 6 days ago

This is a funny one too. My line manager (polish, her) is one the greatest wine lover I know. We've been working with one another for over 2 and half years but she's been my boss since January. We always have had that lovely habit to exchange wine bottles. Every time she travels and attends to tastings she would bring back a bottle to me and the other way around. This year I brought her back one of those white Beaujolais I shared earlier this month and she brought me back this one from Portugal.
Nice nose with black currant, bacon, smoke, blackberry even. This is intoxicating. The palate is easy going with a strong acid backbone and a lot of matter all along. Some width, some of these smokey notes, some tannins too in midpalate, that power up a good long smokey, fruity finish with some freshness. This is overall rather very good!

Adega Mayor

Reserva do Comendador White Blend 2016

Like a lightly orange juiced mimosa without the bubble! Sunshine citrus including tangerine and white grapefruit. A note of sweetness jumps mid palate then finished crisp and dry with ample acid. Love this citrus refresher. — 14 days ago

Terrenus Reserva Vinho Regional Alentejano Red Blend

I think we had the 2011 or 2010 - in Porto. It was delicious. Really full, heavy tannins but still balanced - absolutely delicious — 25 days ago

Quinta da Fonte Souto Arinto Verdelho 2019

Delicious. Is that the least or most useful tasting note? But this is. It’s is a rich dish that someone thought fit to squeeze a lemon on to brighten that dish up. The new oak is in play and probably the biggest factor, but the acid is there—somehow gently cutting through.
Something still keeps it from being transcendent but you are definitely going to desire a second glass.

@Shawn Thompson thank you! It’s true—you can give all the details but sometimes “delicious” is just the truth
