Vintage Porto Port Blend 1940

Oceanic. Some smoke. Raisin and caramel. More like Madeira! Astounding length. Salty, biting. With almost a peppery bite on the finish. Tongue salivating. Perspiring. This heats up the body. Palate is perfect. Nose falls down a little- but this was from open bottle in enomatic so may not be the wine’s fault. — 2 months ago

@Peter Sultan almost! Wine shop in Lisbon had it in their enomatic machine. Couldn’t resist; it was 40 euros for a small taste.

Simply sublime! Recommended by our somm at Pedro Limos. Mersault for an accessible price. The wine that made me fall for Luis Seabra. — 4 months ago

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Red Blend 2020

This wine deserves a lot more credit than I’ve afforded it in the past. Seabra is doing great things, and this is a wholly original Douro offering. Burgundian? — 18 days ago

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco 2021

This is delicious. Kind of like a Portuguese take on Loire Chenin blanc. I know I shouldn’t necessarily compare other regions to some French benchmark but that’s just where my mind goes — 2 months ago

Colheita Porto Port Blend 2007

1/24 High marks. Wonderful earthy notes. In the sweet side. it is better oxidizing in the bottle so some of the sugarless subsides. Plenty of caramel, toffee, ripe fruit. Outside of the sweetness which can be cloying a solid 90. — 3 months ago

Vinhos Barbeito

Rare Wine Co. Historic Series Special Reserve Madeira Savannah Verdelho

Translucent cold brew color, rather pungent citrus and roasted pecan nose. Yum already. Then medium sweet, deeply caramel more pecan on the palate. This wine feels like family and that’s not just my Austin-grandparent-pecan-picking nostalgia. It’s so friendly but capable of throwing you for a loop—how high is that alcohol? (19.5 abv)) but WHAT sort of kernel/nut elements are they and are they STILL judging where I went to school? These pecan-savvy questions fade as elegant smoky elements wave through to tell you it doesn’t matter so long as you graduated. It keeps you on your toes and keeps you looking towards more time together. — 4 months ago
