Fonseca

Porto Vintage Port Blend 2011

Honestly this was selected to pair with a chocolate tart but solo or with the tart it was amazing. Not your typical overly sweet or mediciney port. This was an elegant red wine with deep red flavors and amazing balance. Likely my favorite port of the past 10 years. Decanted 3 hours before we drank it. — 6 days ago

Quinta das Carvalhas

Tinto Douro 2014

The color alone is outstanding. The wine is outstanding. A smooth delivery and surprisingly balanced fruit essence. No snappy tannins. Served chilled a d aerated. Perfect with a cheese board. Obrigrado! — 14 days ago

Jose Duarte d'Oliveira

Quinta do Sibio Porto 1900

Very cool to drink a Colheita port from 1900. Flown over from the UK the night before, so still undergoing some bottle shock. Could have stood for a few more days to settle any sediment. Cloudy but still pretty delicious. — 7 days ago
