Great bubbles from Portugal.
Crean, crisp (but not so much minerals) but still a great one. Pure fruit flavours between grey pear and lemon. Medium lenght and medium alcohol.
Highly recommended when in Portugal or when in need to cool down a bit. — 15 days ago
No pesticides but #smellslikecitronella Tastes like an aged brown wine — 15 days ago
Red wine from Lisbon area made by 100% Touriga Nacional, one of the main grapes used in Porto wine.
On the nose intense ripe black fruits. In particular, there are strong notes of blackberry jam.
Dry on the palate with high acidity and tannins.
Good value for lovers of full-bodied reds. — 4 days ago
Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee lunch...always such a treat to attend. This week, Dan hosted. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All blind as usual.
I guessed late 80s/early 90s port. A bit surprised this was an ‘85...so incredibly young. Color was still quite dark. Nose and palate were heavy on cinnamon-sugar cashew notes, cocoa and nutmeg. — 3 days ago
