Porta dos Cavaleiros Dão Red Blend 1985

Other than vintage port, this is the only Portuguese wine in the cellar. First encountered in a small wine shop in Vancouver BC about 5 or 6 years ago. I’m so happy to enjoy it again. Wonderfully mature, with a bouquet of forest floor, saddle leather, coffee... you get it. The wine is just where I want it to be. Low alcohol 12.5 percent or so. It’s just what happens when the winemaker builds a well defined structure that allows for graceful aging of an adolescent wine into something wizened, full of character. — 4 months ago

Reserve Dão Branco White Blend 1984

Cheesy, nutty, obviously got quite a lot of age on it but only more full of character for it. Dried apricot fruit and a nose that smells like a barn. — 3 years ago
