1912 Vines Colchagua Valley Sauvignon Gris 2017

Very flinty. Great balance and tons of flavor. Notes of white florals, honey, green apple, honeydew melon. Creamy, britches but mellow acid. — a month ago

Los Lingues Vineyard Carménère 2017

Dusty cellar nose.

This is a big and unique wine, with lovely jabs of cacao, green pepper, oil cured olives, cassis.
Delicious tannin and acidity, long and hefty.
A great wine, and a still undervalued grape.

Carmenére so underdone and...sometimes I think yah it is a grape GREAT to blend for missing components but so fun to try and discover on it’s own...I’m most certainly not an expert on the variety though so...

@Ellen Clifford You are Spot on, it has so much merit blended in Europe, yet for me they really stand alone in Chile. All about the terroir..

Collares Genuino Premiado 2011

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.

Colares Chitas Reserva Velho Ramisco 1923

This has all the markings of a mountainside red from volcanic soil, but it’s from the Lisbon seaside and has a subtle power that drives through your palette during a virus that has shut us down. — 7 days ago

Reserva Tinto Collares Ramisco 1969

OK, this is 50+ year old Ramisco from Collares (note old spelling with 2 “ll”), grown in the SAND west of Lisbon, leather, earthy, just amazingly complex, balanced, with an incredible finish, a hand-carried bottle purchased at the winery 1 year ago, no way one smells and tastes this incredible Ramisco and (blind) would guess it’s a 1969 vintage, just incredible!!! — 2 months ago
