Reserva Dão Touriga Nacional Blend 2011

$8.49 amazing! Certain wines from Portugal like this Dao presenting the grapes and terroir of the region just blow away similar values of wines from elsewhere on price! Beautiful fully composed complex rich red wine fruit forward but with a mineralogy at the back end remind me of northern Napa flavors but without the over intensity of those primarily cab based wines. Had this with porterhouse and blue cheese broad Ted Brussels with a spritz of organic Nama Shoyu... amazing! — a year ago

Roussanne 2015

Tasted 09/11/2016

Colleague's farewell party wine 1.

Sonorous, charming, refreshing Roussanne originated from Anapa, Black Sea foothills.

Dense lemony yellow, greenish tint.
Delicate bouquet is woven of lemon, flowers (linden, osmanthus), tarragon, delicate mineral and spicy hint, pear, white peach, nectarine. 
Elegant palate of light-plus body, refreshing acidity. Scented by pineapple, pomelo, white currant, chalk, nectarine.
Very fresh lingering finish of citrus, ginger and ripe white currant.
Gone as apetitif.

Rompecabezas Amador Syrah Blend 2013

On the blue side of blue/black fruit with a fragrant Northern Ca herbal influence. And it hits the sweet spot between mid and full bodied. Rocks with lamb chops. — 2 years ago

La Petite Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2009

Stellar expression of Hermitage. The '09 warm vintage truly manifest itself in this wine with incredibly ripe black and blue fruits, black peppercorns and smoked meat. A powerful, complex, elegant wine with persistent tannins and wonderful acidity that keeps you reaching for more. Paired wonderfully with roasted lamb. Paul Ainé is a fantastic producer of wines in the region and this bottling from La Petite Chapelle does not disappoint. Could have easily been kept for another couple years but I thoroughly enjoyed drinking it today! — 2 years ago
