Bairrada, Beiras

Luis Pato

Quinta do Moinho Red Blend 2000

W&S Top 100. Now, this one is debatable. Bring it in here. I dig that a current release is almost 20 years old. But man I want to know what this tasted like 5 years ago, 10 years ago! The great aspect of owning a cellar and releasing at the will of ownership, you could “traunch-it”. Right? The leather and soft integration here seemed a bit too far. Certainly not gone. But 5-10 years prior, that is the decade I would have loved to try this. — 21 hours ago

Quinta de Baixo

Lagar de Baixo Bairrada Baga 2016

J. Kim

Transforms into something remarkable after a day. Seemed too delicate and fragile on the first day but the Baga structure takes over and surrounds the palate with infinitesimally fine tannins. — 5 days ago

Casa de Mouraz

Dão Encruzado 2016

The 2016 Encruzado is a beautiful wine reminiscent of Chablis. Spiced pear, Meyer lemon, honeydew and hints of tropical fruit on the finish. Slight reduction is well done. Outstanding QPR. — 25 days ago
