Quintas das Carvalhas Reserva Douro 2020

Aroma has a touch of diacetyl but it's light enough to be pleasant. Loads of currant and with a heavy cocoa, tobacco, and slate finishing note. Drinks surprisingly light for as dark and heavy as it smells. Very fruity with a lot of acid but a tannic finish that quenches the acid. Very nice wine. — a month ago

Pazo das Bruxas Rías Baixas Albariño 2022

Pale lemon color with stone and tropical fruit aromas and with floral citrus scents. On the palate flavors of peaches and pineapple with citrus zest and hints of chalky notes. Well balanced with lively acidity, long finish ending with mineral, citrus and wet stone nuances. Very nice. Pair this with some sushi. — 3 months ago

Douro Red Blend 2020

Really enjoyed this wine. Had the 2020 reserva in November of 2023. Some currant and tobacco were there. Was fruity and acidic but the tannins on the end eliminated the acidity. Drinks surprisingly light for its color and bouquet. Paired with a Portuguese Madeira creamy chicken. Went really well with the cream and cheese. Would drink this one again in a heartbeat. — a month ago

Quinta das Carvalhas Porto Tawny 20 Years Old Port Blend

Tasty. Hubby and I have really been digging this winery so had to try their port. Deep rich aromas of cocoa, vanilla and tobacco. Lots of raisin, date and figs. Drinks sweet up front with the dried fruit flavor dominating before giving way to oak flavors, tannins and a touch of acid to wash the sweetness away. — 23 days ago

Conde Villar Alvarinho 2019

Once again this is vinho Verde at its very best. Pear, cantaloupe, chalk. There's that mineral thing on the nose that tells you it's going to be great 😊 the palate is very well made with a great acid backbone, a good width and mouthfeel, some pear and slightly lemony notes, before a long and fresh finish that goes on for a while. Why is everyone overlooking Vinho Verde? — a year ago
