Dona Santana Touriga Nacional Blend 2006

Cork disintegrated but this Dao is exceptional. Totally resolved, with nicely ripe fruit mingling with secondary and tertiary leather and dusty gravel notes. Velvety textured. Acids balanced. It could actually hold a few more years. — 18 days ago

3B Bairrada Rosé Espumante Baga

The label would normally be off putting to me, but I’m always interested in a female vintner, especially when she is the daughter of a famous Portuguese maker. What a revelation-drinks more like a sparkling Savoie or alpine rose. Close to the bone dry. Lovely pink color. Fine mousse. I love that label now…. — a month ago

Frei João Bairrada Baga Blend

While I have great respect and appreciation for wines like these I simply don’t have the palate for them.

Iodine, beef blood, smoky BBQ. I’m sure this is lights out with a dry aged ribeye but a 2oz. pour is enough for me. Very reminiscent of the 1969 Colares I had a few months back. Properly stored.

Nice, I've also had this '85, but not the Reserva. Fun stuff.

@Severn Goodwin good catch, I adjusted the identified wine. About to try it with flank stank and charred scallions. Cheers!
