Guyot Douro White Blend 2016

A bit modest at first, but with a pronounced minerality that is confidently taking over the show, and evolving into a salty complexity. Great presence and a vibrant texture on the palate is driving the fruit through the finish. A very smart wine. — 11 days ago

Quinta da Manoella Vinhas Velhas Douro Red Blend 2009

Vinho com parcela de uvas centenárias. Uma hora e meia de decanter revela os aromas do vinho. Muito corpo, denso. Final longo e persistente. Excelente vinho. Entrou nos meus favoritos. — 11 days ago

Portada Winemaker's Selection Lisboa Red Blend 2011

A little on the sweet side but very refreshing. Goes well with a beautiful sunny day 72° after a week of total rain. For $10 a bottle I will definitely buy it again. Definitely has a hint of Cherry but is very mild. This is a 2011 that we’re having here in May 2019. — 6 days ago

Reserva 10 Barricas Lisboa Touriga Nacional

Really dark and full bodied wine. Went really well with spicy food but equally as good on its own. Loved this wine! — 4 days ago

Charme Douro Red Blend

2015 is silky smooth, the Burgundy of the Douro. Plush red fruits, good acid balance, and a long finish. Highly recommended as a Douro / Niepoort reference for elegance. — 8 days ago
