José de Sousa Alentejano Red Blend 2016

A dark purple colour, slightly tight vegetal nose hinting at blackberries and wet clay. The palate is extremely smooth, breathing notes of chocolate, blackberry, dark plum and leather. The tannins are very well integrated and the wine has lovely and unique characteristics made from less well known grapes including Grand Noir, Trincadeira and Aragonez. The wine was partially fermented in clay pots and then aged in new French oak. A really interesting buy if you love a deep, rich, smooth and mellow red. Paired perfectly with grilled burgers. A steal at $16. — 9 days ago

Guimarens Vintage Porto Port Blend 2015

Founded in 1822 and still managed by successive generations of the Guimaraens family. This is something special and should be set down for many years. I opened this bottle early to celebrate my Mom’s 86th birthday, which was a very special occasion. Dark purple with complex aromas of berry & currants with notes of dry herbs. On the palate lots of rich dark berry flavors, with cedar, pepper and mineral at the core. Dense tannins, lingering ending with a statement. Very nice! — 2 months ago

Hedy’s dessert-Chocolate Soufflé with Cream. Paired with the 2012 Fronseca Guimararens Vintage Port. Yum!

Certainly early on the Port but, the only 375ml I could find in my cabinets before dinner.

Quinta de Camarate Setúbal Red Blend 2014

Portugal realmente NUNCA decepciona em seus vinhos. Esse Setúbal tem muita fruta vermelha, um toque de violeta e acidez refrescante. Um blend com Touriga Nacional, Aragonês, Cabernet Sauvignon e Castelão. Excelente custo-benefício! — 2 months ago
