Quinta dos Carvalhais

Dão Colheita Encruzado 2015

Made only in exceptional years, an excellent example of the Touriga Nacional grape, medium Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, herb and floral spice, aged for 12 months in new and used French oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with notes of cedar, herb and baking spice. Fine ripe tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, oak and earthy spice. — 5 days ago

Gonçalves Faria Bical Maria Gomes 2015

Glorious length, palate-staining. Not fat but very pure & forceful waves of citrus, stone-fruit, minerals. Plenty of acidity, could age more — no idea which way the flavor profiles evolves. — 16 days ago

Still an extraordinary taste for a white that’s over 25 years old. — a month ago

Sogrape Vinhos

Aiolas Dão Red Blend 2019

Color is a mix of purple and burgundy, a bit cloudy. Nose of dried strawberry, spicy note, currants, and carbonates grape juice. Taste is smooth and follows the nose with addition of zest, decent acidity, and tiny hint of mineral. Some more blackberry. And some more black pepper. Aftertaste of some more warmth from black peppers. Clean and warm, and above average. — 17 days ago

Poeirinho Baga 2012

Right up my alley. Needed tons of air. Mid weight, full palate, beautiful perfume. Pricey in Singapore but would buy in Europe by caseload. Ideal with duck confit, grouse, usual suspects. — 11 days ago

Casta Baga Bruto Espumante

Dirty, dusty red fruit - red currant, raspberry, rose hip, but also a whiff of blood orange with a mineral core underneath, fresh & slightly funky.
Bone dry on the palate, with persistent bubbles, juicy fruit and a slight touch of tannins. The irony, bloody character of Baga shines through.
Unorthodox, delicious stuff. Brilliant with food.
