Xisto Cru Tinto 2016

Nose has blackberry jam, moist leather, fig paste, charred wood, chopped dark chocolate and faint vanilla.

Palate has dried blueberry, blackberry, dried black currant, muddy garden soil, faint dried strawberry with mild tannins and medium acidity.

Solid pairing to a baked 'Mac & Cheese' dish fancied up with a béchamel sauce, Gorgonzola & Fontina cheeses, breadcrumbs and Casarecce Corte pasta. (Interpretation of a recipe courtesy of Joanne Weir)

Estate Grown Syrah 2017

Conflicting. Nose hits a savory olive and meaty syrah sweet spot. But palette and finish don’t match. Almost artificial. And half a bottle gave one helluva headache. Another WE 94 ??? — a month ago

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco 2020

2nd time around & Im still impressed. Fascinating to taste the evolution in the glass. Goes from a more Jura- almost oxidized state to Chablis like precision. So far one of my fave Portuguese producers — 17 days ago

'Caberrubia' Fino Sherry Palomino

Palomino harvested from Carrascal vineyard in four passes during the season. Grapes exposed to sun for approx. 4 hrs to elevate sugars, no fortification necessary. Vintages prob-2013-2017 Saca iv.
N: Old wooden boats, tinned peaches, iodine, the sea baby!, Hazelnuts,Orange and lemon rinds, wax, petroleum, …
P:Oranges and peaches, So delicate, some wood, tactility seductive, Viscous yet refreshing.preserved citrus. The “ inner mouth energy” is tremendous.
Not overly oxidative, I could go on.
Find some.
Thanks @enramistas, @NickAfricano, @LuisPérez

Monte Ory Rosado Garnacha 2019

I am loving this Rosada from Spain! Full of red berries, kiwis, nectarine, wet river rock and herbs which pop on a nice long finish! Wonderful viscosity..looks like a Rosè but performs as a red. — 20 days ago
