Vinhas Velhas Baga 2016

N: Roses, tar, eucalyptus, mint, pepper, Red flowers and fruits.
P:Bracing acidity, prickly, med-light body,( are we sure this isn’t Nebbiolo?)
Cherries, Very much like a cross between Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir, and Sangiovese. I think I’ve said that before.
Black raspberry fruit, fine tannins, a med finish.!
As it sits in the glass, tobacco rears it’s head. The body fleshes out a bit. Acidity recedes.

Vina de Martin Os Pasas Ribeiro White Blend 2017

Something very Burgundian with a distinct resiny bouquet of fresh wet pebbles and oyster shell.

Equal parts cream and acid.

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco 2018

Usually it’s a curse when your wine seller says it’s “ Chablis-esque”. Not this time. What a sensorium of fruit and layers of sea shell minerals; green apples, a bit of lemon curd; rs? Pitch perfect balance, pitch perfect price-under 27$. If this doesn’t convince you Portugal can swing with the heavy hitters,….From the Douro. — 8 days ago

Vinhas Velhas (Branco) Vinho Regional Beiras White Blend 2016

Revisiting this vintage, almost three years since my first review. Truly a stunning wine at this price point. It has developed a honeycomb and golden apple quality that is reminiscent of Loire chenin, and a combination of minerality and richness that suggests Alsace. But enough with the banal comparisons; this stands on its own as an outstanding white from indigenous varieties. A tad volatile, but it works well for the style. Terrific food companion and one of the finest values out there. — 22 days ago

Derby West Vineyard Pinot noir 2019

Aaron has produced a textbook Pinot with his Derbyshire Vineyard Pinot. It’s refined but not subtle. It’s fruit is in check. Paired with Mexican, pizza and pork chops. — 13 days ago
