Vintage Port Blend 1977

This is alive but it’s a person you’re not sure you want to spend time with. The color is alive. Smoked paprika, char-cooked cherries, garringue, sweet spicy peppers. Not disappointed. The fun of auction. — 11 days ago

Great again. Super light in color but fully loaded and very subtle. Still young but throwing a bunch of sediment (out of 375ml) exceptional with the bolivar cuban stick. — 9 days ago

Redoma Douro Branco White Blend

Field blend of Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Viosinho, Donzelinho and Gouveio from 80 years old vines on schist soils. Vineyard on the right bank of the Douro River, in the prime Cima Corgo zone, at an altitude of 400-600 metres. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 6 months in oak. Clean, precise nose with citrus (tangerine), floral notes and and subtle oak. Fresh, linear, medium bodied, dry. Good minerality and acidity. Very tasty — 13 days ago

Vintage Port Blend 2007

Now & Forever

07 Port Vintage has high expectations. Time to check in on my first Graham’s 375ml

DAY1
Served with the Vinloq System
👃Purple fruits. Hint of raisining
👅Sweet ripe plums & blackberries. Perfumed almonds, chocolate, vanilla, & 5 spice. Silky & creamy texture. Mod sweetness for a V.P. Finishes with eucalyptus. No heat

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my fridge with Vinloq

DAY10
Just as incredible as DAY1

DAY21
Complex. Beautiful. Balanced

So drinkable now. About as good as 14 yr old vintage port can taste. Every component in balance. Gentle tannins but nice grip and proper acidity. Fantastic over 3 weeks. Looking forward to tracking my remaining bottles of this over time 👍

Fine White Porto

NV It is certain that the moment you taste, the people with who you taste, the atmosphere is important for your valuation. I never drink white port. Chilled port on a sunny Saturday afternoon with some ‘amuses’ I find incredibly enjoyable. And great value. Fine appetizer. — 11 days ago

Agreed, I faintly enjoy white Port, but a Spring afternoon is the perfect companion.

Quinta Vale D. Maria ( Quinta Vale Dona Maria )

Quinta Vale D. Maria Douro 2004

Beautiful and perfect example of Douro, with powerful fruit in the front and an elegant finish with no harsh tannins. A great wine. This wine went perfectly with Greek lamb souvlaki. Expensive but worth it. And so fresh after 18 years. — a day ago

Duo Mistura Douro Red Blend 2019

Beautiful label, beautiful nose, beautiful ruby color, beautiful taste. Deep and round, like a ball that has fallen into in a really well dug hole. Tannic on the backside. Lip smacking berry and palate coating. — 4 days ago

Douro Tinto Reserva 2019

Fruit forward aromas of ripe blackberries, same on the palate with a medium oaky body and baking spice and peppery tannins. Very balanced and wanting red meat! — 4 days ago

Where you find it? Had a Douro wine on Saturday night and was thinking about you.
