So glad to come across this vintage bottle from an estate that we visited in Douro! great example of Portuguese wine with great balance and structure. Very complex and perfectly hitting its stride right now! Dark berries and sherry hints! — 17 days ago

Where you find it? Had a Douro wine on Saturday night and was thinking about you.

Esporão

Private Selection Sémillon 2015

Nose: apricots, peaches, sweet almonds
Taste: apricot, honey dew melon, something grassy, like it's (partially) underripened grapes
Mild acidity, very little residual sugar. Altogether lovely

From an old bottle released 10+ years ago not so. Plenty to love if a little tired, lots of flavor just lost a little of that acid snap! — 11 days ago

Niepoort (Vinhos) S.A.

Redoma Douro Branco White Blend

Field blend of Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Viosinho, Donzelinho and Gouveio from 80 years old vines on schist soils. Vineyard on the right bank of the Douro River, in the prime Cima Corgo zone, at an altitude of 400-600 metres. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 6 months in oak. Clean, precise nose with citrus (tangerine), floral notes and and subtle oak. Fresh, linear, medium bodied, dry. Good minerality and acidity. Very tasty — 5 days ago

Vintage Port Blend 1977

This is alive but it’s a person you’re not sure you want to spend time with. The color is alive. Smoked paprika, char-cooked cherries, garringue, sweet spicy peppers. Not disappointed. The fun of auction. — 3 days ago

Vintage Port Blend 2007

Now & Forever

07 Port Vintage has high expectations. Time to check in on my first Graham’s 375ml

DAY1
Served with the Vinloq System
👃Purple fruits. Hint of raisining
👅Sweet ripe plums & blackberries. Perfumed almonds, chocolate, vanilla, & 5 spice. Silky & creamy texture. Mod sweetness for a V.P. Finishes with eucalyptus. No heat

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my fridge with Vinloq

DAY10
Just as incredible as DAY1

DAY21
Complex. Beautiful. Balanced

So drinkable now. About as good as 14 yr old vintage port can taste. Every component in balance. Gentle tannins but nice grip and proper acidity. Fantastic over 3 weeks. Looking forward to tracking my remaining bottles of this over time 👍

Fine White Porto

NV It is certain that the moment you taste, the people with who you taste, the atmosphere is important for your valuation. I never drink white port. Chilled port on a sunny Saturday afternoon with some ‘amuses’ I find incredibly enjoyable. And great value. Fine appetizer. — 3 days ago

Agreed, I faintly enjoy white Port, but a Spring afternoon is the perfect companion.
