Quinta dos Quatro Ventos Douro Red Blend 2010

Blackberry/Black Cherry/Black Currant aromas and flavors. Impressive structure and slightly chewy (but not oppressive) tannins. Creamy touch of Smokey vanilla and oak on the very long finish. Red blend of Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz. Deep purple color. This one has aged beautifully. Thanks for sharing, Ron B! — 2 months ago

Particular Reserva Single Estate Dão Red Blend 2010

Very good on balance. Nothing that wows you but well done by the growers and winenmaker. — 4 years ago


Foral Reserva Douro Red Blend 2009

Dense black plum and cherry fruit aromas that took time to appear. Initially, the nose was dominated by the scent of rubber tires. Same dark fruit flavors but they seemed a bit muted and flat. Juicy acidity comes through on the finish. Might be a bit past its prime. — 2 months ago

Quinta da Terrugem T Alentejo Red Blend 1999

What a stunning wine! All that an extra 8 years did (I tried the same vintage in 2009, at the 10-year mark) was make it more layered and overall impressive. To drink now, decant well ahead (I’m talking minimum 3 hours) and drink from a ‘grand vin’, if you can. To drink later... probably the same? Either way, it will absolutely be worth it. — 4 years ago

Terra Boa Old Vines Red Blend 2014

Had saved this unfiltered gem. It has never been produced the same. If you can find it with bottle age, you will be rewarded. — 3 years ago
