Quinta de Santiago

Santiago na Ânfora do Rocim Alvarinho

This is an exquisite white. Very different style of alvarinho. Bright acidity, a good body and soft mouthfeel. It drinks more like a Chablis. I’ve rarely rated a white wine this high, let alone a vinho verde. If you find it, buy it. — 24 days ago

Quinta do Cardo

Vinho Tinto Touriga Nacional Tinta Roriz 2013

Had it in Portugal at the Yeatman. Tasted like grass and dirt. Favorite wine I’ve ever tasted. — 2 years ago

Quinta do Noval

Maria Mansa Douro Red Blend 2019

Nose of leather, blackberry and truffle. Plum, black pepper, raspberry, blueberry and plum, with savoury notes of sage and butter. Nice pepper last, with a great finish. Great wine, but can get better Chilean Syrah for similar price — 22 days ago

Quinta do Covão

Reserva Dão Touriga Nacional 2016

After a few hours decant, very nice—full bodied without too much tannin; deep dark fruit, bit of smoke, but not too hot despite 14.5% alcohol—glad I have 4-5 more in the cellar — a month ago

Quinta do Carmo

Alentejo Red Blend 2003

I suppose this is considered old wine (or at least in my book it is)... It’s 18 years old to be exact. And it is fascinating, the wine still looks and feels pretty young. Very exuberant with notes of leather, oak, cocoa, tobacco, smoke and baked black berries, some humidity as well. The palette is joy: smooth and velvety with dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, some dry mushroom and perfectly balanced acidity. It is dry, bold, complex, with medium alcohol. Killer wineshop find!

I wasn’t able to find much info on this wine, any shared knowledge on the comments would really enlighten me. Apparently there is some affiliation with Lafitte… Not comparing, I haven't had the pleasure of tasting it, but this one really blew me out of the water. Cheers to great finds.
