Delectable mistakenly put it as the red- but that white is a damn good wine

Vinhos Barbeito

The Rare Wine Co. Charleston Sercial Special Reserve Madeira

Fantastic bottle. Raw tartness and power structured by the unique geometry of oxidative winemaking. Sweet dried fruit nose with grilled walnuts, and the body is sherry-like, but with a vibrant bite beyond all but the best sweet sherry. Mushroom, rum, caramel, and berry liquor. So good. — a month ago

Baga Touriga Nacional Vinho Regional Beiras 2015

Dark rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, top soil and crushed flowers. Very light, balanced, complex, with polished tannins. This is great stuff. Low in alcohol too. Highly recommended. — 15 days ago

Quinta do Vallado

Douro Touriga Nacional

I screwed up and forgot to take a picture of the bottle. The image is from their site. Very dark, blackish rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, anise and tobacco, with crushed flowers. Dense, medium to full bodied, fine tannins and absolutely singing now, albeit no rush. Great red done in the old old world classical way. Great stuff !! — 7 days ago

Nice blend that pops with fireworks of fruity flavor. Mostly strawberry, but some sweet and spicy undercurrents as well. Surprisingly good with chocolate. — 15 hours ago

With R. Delish! It has a peppery bouquet.l but is very light, almost refreshing. A very unusually easy-drinking red — 10 days ago

Luis Duarte

Rubrica Vinho Regional Alentejano 2015

This has a musty old world aroma of earth and forest floor. This translates on the palate with deep rich flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate, and pepper. This is full bodied with a strong backbone of well integrated tannin and a lasting finish. — 3 days ago
