Quinta do Vallado

Douro Red Blend 2017

Big and Bold Red Field Blend. Ripe plum and black fruit aromas along with notes of asphalt and smoke. Blackberry fruit flavors with highlights of wood, slate, earth and black tea. Firm tannins and bone dry, but plenty of acidity to keep the wine balanced. Big, rich and rustic. Might need a bit more bottle aging. Outstanding QPR. — 18 days ago

Quinta do Crasto

Superior Douro Red Blend 2016

Pretty much as expected! Dark purple color. Restrained nose of oak and blackberry. Wine was tight but opened up and paired nicely with our steaks. The texture is the highlight as it is pure velvet. Lacked depth and fruit, but not terrible. — 16 days ago

10 Year Old Tawny Port Blend

Confrérie Des Chevaliers du Tastevin Sous-Commanderie d'Albany; 20 September 2020 at New World Bistro, Albany, NY

Physically Distanced 🚧 but Socially Close 🤗 dinner, our first in +8mo. Following the reasonable NY State dining regulations, seated and masked. While a new experience, it was well worth it to see our core group again.

Reserva Quinta do Poço do Lobo Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Fantastic wine with loads of Cabernet goodness! 25 years old and drinking beautifully right now. Tannins were smooth and mellow, fruit was still fresh, and acid was just right. What a treat! — 16 days ago

Reserva Douro Red Blend 2013

Really well made wine. Balanced. Super deep purple in colour. Dark fruit. A bit of coffee. Lots of oak. A lot is going on with this. Love it!

But... is it worth it?

Quinta do Montalto

Vinha da Malhada White Blend 2017

Very drinkable, lighter red, dry, pairs nicely with food. We had buttered halibut. Would definitely buy again for the price. — 13 days ago

Quinta do Vallado

Reserva Field Blend Douro Red Blend 2012

Field blend. No way to know exactly what the breakdown of grapes is in this wine. Old vine red that features super ripe plum, fig and cherry fruit with highlights of dark chocolate, balsamic vinegar and tobacco. Hint of mineral on the very long finish. A beautifully rustic wine made in a traditional rustic style. — 22 days ago

Quinta do Noval

Vintage Port Blend 2017

As the supplier said: either drink it young or drink it in 10 years or more. Today it was vibrant fruity: cherries and currants. Nice layered sweet and sour. A nose that keeps you busy — 8 days ago

Superior Vinho Regional Duriense Syrah 2016

Breaking into a bottle from a 2019 trip to Douro. Beautiful - eggplant hued and powerful on the nose. I’m very glad I stuffed a bottle into my suitcase to bring it home. Earthiness, licorice, freshly cracked black pepper balanced with a touch of citrus and strong tannins. A perfect bottle. — 7 hours ago
