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. — 13 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. — 5 days ago

Alamo Creek Ranch Grenache 2016

Full bodied and atypical to the varietal, but very pleasurable. Racy, spiced and oaked. I like it, but it does not speak to me as a Grenache, as it is too big. Nice acid, and full flavor red fruits. — a month ago
