Quite dry on first taste, but as the wine aerated a bit, it becomes very drinkable with a hint of citrus. — a month ago

This is a great Orin Swift red blend from Portugal. Spicy and full bodied with medium acidity.
Showing black fruits with earth, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Good right out of the bottle and good for parties.

A rich and savory blend of Touriga Nacional and Syrah, it offers a deep and complex nose of currants, plum, black pepper, black tea, dried mushrooms, saddle wood, and dark chocolate. Bright acidity brings energy to a full body.
Could not be more happy to pick out this gem at a great restaurant in Macau, probably one of the most under-the-radar (certainly not underrated as this tiny peninsula boasts 3 Michelin 3-star restaurant) food destination. — 8 days ago
White flower, lemon balm, fresh hay, toasted seeds, jasmine and mineral on the palate. Wicked good. — 5 days ago
Smells of pears. Citrus fruit with low acidity but not flabby. This is the best wine with spicy food. Usually wine is astringent and bitter after eating spicy food but this wine maintains its flavors and even tastes a touch of creaminess. — 20 days ago
