Vintage Porto 1997

Opened for a friend that is a port fan, which I am not anymore. Smooth and silky, still a lot of fruit, tannins are easy on the palate, not too warm, surprisingly fresh, you don’t sense the 20% alcohol in there, was quite enjoyable with still some gas in the tank for a 23 yo wine.

Ouvert pour un ami qui est amateur de porto, ce que je ne suis plus. Ouvert, texture veloutée et agréable, c’est fin avec une certaine fraîcheur surprenante, on ne sent pas le 20% d’alcool du tout. Bien aimé et un vin pas encore sur le déclin.

Quinta Vale D. Maria ( Quinta Vale Dona Maria )

Reserva Porto

Lot No. 16 - don’t know exactly what the “lot #s” mean, and the website is under construction. Vintage? But it isn’t a vintage or LBV. Predominant year in the blend? Bottled in 2018. I found this really unusual, in a good way, for a ruby port. It has a dusky, dry tannic character. But silky smooth. Reminds me of tea and raisins, and maybe dried blueberries. Really like this. — 12 hours ago

Quinta de Porrais

Douro Red Blend 2014

Classic Portuguese Red Blend. Beautiful and complex on the nose. Dark berries, grilled herbs and dark chocolate. A bit less note worthy on the pallet. Dark berries, black currants, licorice and dark chocolate. Aged nine months in French Oak. A bit of sharpness on the finish. Dark purple color and soft tannins. Quite respectable and solid. Just not spectacular. Give this one a decant. — 20 days ago

The tawny port wine that got me into red wine. Since then moved to vintage port (ruby) and in general red wine. Don't drink any tawny port these days but this wine still has a special place in my heart. — 8 days ago
