Quinta De Cabriz

Quinta do Crasto

Reserva Douro Red Blend 2016

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.

Quinta de Baixo

Gonçalves Faria Bical Maria Gomes 2015

Glorious length, palate-staining. Not fat but very pure & forceful waves of citrus, stone-fruit, minerals. Plenty of acidity, could age more — no idea which way the flavor profiles evolves. — 4 days ago

Quinta do Vallado

Reserva Field Blend Douro Red Blend 2015

Supposed to be a Brasil copa champion wine but not their night. Wine way better than the game. Unlike Brazil tonite this wine is well integrated and smooth. Big nose black fruit dominate. Black berries. Leather. Big mouthfeel. Vanilla but oak not over the top. Love it. Smooth tannins. Dark fruit . Figs. Prefer over their touriga. At least I think I do. Should do head to head tasting. Great wine, shitty game. — 13 days ago
