Bright tart tangy-ness. Earthy nose and green apple and blood orange bite. Some mix up perhaps on the identification...this is an orange wine. — 20 days ago
Portuguese Duoro from +70 year old vines with a dark inky color; takes about an hour to open up with scents of vanilla, plum and black currant. On the pallet, the wine begins very austere and rustic, gradually evolves to progressive layers of dark fruit, vanilla, cocoa, leather and piercing acidity. This a full bodied, complex wine with firm tannins and a rigid structure, medium plus alcohol. Really enjoyed this wine and pair’s excellent with red pasta and dishes rich in animal fat; do give it time to open up though, it’ll pay-off for sure.

Color is a mix of purple and burgundy, a bit cloudy. Nose of dried strawberry, spicy note, currants, and carbonates grape juice. Taste is smooth and follows the nose with addition of zest, decent acidity, and tiny hint of mineral. Some more blackberry. And some more black pepper. Aftertaste of some more warmth from black peppers. Clean and warm, and above average. — 5 days ago
