Casta Ramisco 1997

Mushrooms and eastern spices on the nose, cranberry and cedar palette. Secondaries definitely have taken over, tannins super smooth. — 8 days ago

Colares Chitas Reserva Velho Ramisco

Amazing wine/ drank 2006 reserve- this wine can age longer I believe. Overall a very unique wine with tons of character- the tamisco grape is unique to the coastal region of Portugal - one of the old heirloom vines- and because I like thin mineral reds this is my dream come true for sipping wine! If you have a chance of getting this wine- Buy it by the case and hold on to it - very unique and should be more recognized for the hen that it is. — 5 years ago

Região Demarcada Vinho Tinto Ramisco 1945

Unbelievably fresh and acidic still for such an old wine. Beautiful fruit still, and secondary notes. Gorgeous wine. — 19 days ago

A unicorn wine presents a unicorn experience. First, all hail the Ramisco varietal, explained to me as singular to this area of Portugal and soon to be extinct given the level of building development there. From the label: “the Colares wine región was defined in 1908. The vineyards are planted in the dunes between the hills of sintra and the Atlantic Ocean “. The nose alone is worth the price of admission: vibrates with intensity, red fruits, cut flowers. And this was after drinking an intensely vibrant Syrah by Herve Souhaut!
Taste is somewhere between a medium bodied Rioja and a deep Mercia from Ribera Sacra, minus any traces of barrel aging. Utterly seductive mouthfeel, not unctuous or cloying, almost chewy. An intense pitch of acidity higher up on the register ( hence the Ribera analogy). 38$ for a 500ml bottle. A reminder why sharing wines like these with your homeboys is the only way to live.

A dry mouth feel but plush and deep. I need more and so I bought some.

Manuel José Colares

Reserva Colares Vinho Tinto 1997

There must be a story here, as this 100% Ramisco has a Colheita designation on its label, which I thought could only be used for Port. For a 23 yro wine it still flutters with intensity, but has a faded Ribena palate, beautiful red brick color, & crushed currants/oil paint on the nose. It also avoids the metallic flavor my previous bottle had. For under 40$ it’s a treat to taste such a graceful aged wine. — 2 years ago

Carcavelos Ramisco 1991

Unbelievable! A statement in the beginning, followed by roasted chestnuts that are maybe a little candied; beautiful lingering finish that is warm to the soul. Simply divine! — 5 years ago
