Dão, Beiras

Prunus

Prunus(PT) Private Selection Tinto 2016

Delightfully funky in that distinctly Portuguese way. Perfectly balanced and about as “interesting” as you can get for $13 without using the word euphemistically. The label recommends pork or chicken. Honey glazed tofu worked for us, but stewed oxtail did not. — 9 days ago

Casa Américo

Dão Jaén 2014

Beautiful earthy red.... raspberry, mulberry, candied cherry and eucalyptus with mineral earthiness that just close the deal. A bit brief but Casa Américo has accomplish a wanderful expression of the Jaén ( mencia ) under appreciated grape ... it does benefit from decanting and a temperature around 14 Celsius. — a month ago

Nossa Calcario Branco Bical

Soo delicious. Crisp but not overly acidic. You can tell the baga grapes were grown in limestone soil. Pairs really nicely with lots of different foods. — 4 days ago

'DINAMICA' BAIRRADA TINTO Baga 2018

Covid-19 wine #2: virtually shared with home boy at dusk. Portuguese Baga, give it air as has a delicate but Nebbiolo-ish shade. 12.5%, Skurnik importer. I’m enjoying Portugal now. Plus my MD/ epidemiologist neighbor listened to my lungs and gave me a clean bill of health. Now to work and help keep our patients healthy in pandemic anxiety. — 18 days ago
