Baga Touriga Nacional 2015

2015 vintage. Deep red. Berries. Chocolate. High acid. Dry. Some tannins that aren’t overly aggressive but are definitely present. Initially, I’m not going to lie, it smelled like snow crab legs in the best way (I friggen love snow crab legs). — 2 days ago

Reserva Selección de Familia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

14 years old and still awesome. Perfect balance now between fruits, tertiary tones and chalky minerality. Not sure this is text book rioja here but right in my liking. So glad I bought a few cases some years back. — 8 days ago

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco White Blend 2017

Lyle Fass

Nose has white flowers, but also a monotonous citrus note, some minerals, palate is nice and balanced, very well made. Palate is very Rieslingesque. Complex and mineral. Juicy. Lacks a tiny bit of energy. — 22 days ago

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Red Blend 2015

Très agréable, léger mais curieusement une belle rondeur, un délice avec un pâté au poulet maison! — 16 days ago

El triangulo Balbaina Red Blend 2017

This is actually not a blend. This is 100% Tintilla de Rota; an indigenous red variety to Cadiz. As a retired Naval Officer, I’m quite familiar with this area and more familiar with its sherry! This was a real surprise to me. The wine is 13.5% abv and well balanced. I really want to drink this with a steak! Replace that Cab or Malbec and try this! Cherry, blackberry, and pepper nose and flavors. This is a very well made wine by this Director of oenology at Univ of Cadíz. — 15 days ago

Doña Bernarda Colchagua Valley Red Blend

2014 vintage, opened on 2nd December 2019. Strong full bodied. Moldy, ripe berries, smooth palate. Zest of tangy. Acidity is much well tolerated. Long finish. — 6 days ago

Steiner Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

This is exceptional. Whole cluster. Such a unique terroir. Herbaceous and vegetal, dark red fruit, really intense and persistent, damp Forrest floor, meaty, tobacco, fuller bodied Pinot. Really something special. Optimal drinking now. — a month ago

Croma Vera

San Luis Obispo County Albariño 2018

Xisto Cru Douro Branco White Blend 2016

Dinner with friends tonight, light notes if any.

Limestone, green apple, sea spray, perhaps light-sweet oak. A great Portuguese white, years to go!

No, it's was my friends bottle, not sure I've seen the red version in the wild of retail racks before. This was one of the best, young, Portuguese white wines I've ever tasted.
