Folias de Baco

Uivo Curtido Moscatel Galego Branco

Going for a walking picnic soon, so I’ve got my summer hat locked and loaded.

Turf, thorny rose stems, the white pith of grapefruit. Super vegetal. Like forest moss.

Tart. Puckered peaches, pineapples, and cherry pie. It’s unctuous like a sharp cheddar. Tannic and acidic. Bubbles and a bit more sugar would be welcome here to round out the intensity.

In my mouth, a field of orange trees have been planted.

10 Years Old Madeira Verdelho

An excellent bottling. Lacking the complexity of some of its more aged brethren, but very true to type for the varietal. — 8 days ago

Filipa Pato

Post Quercus Tinto Baga 2015

Vintage 2015 | lovely smell with a combination of cherries, minerality and a hint of raspberry. Fermented and aged in amphora. Juicy taste with high acidity, a real gastronomic wine. | Paired with chicken livers in port cream sauce. — 8 days ago

Colares Chitas Reserva Velho Ramisco 2009

Unique wine from pre-phylloxera vines grown in the sand less than a mile from the Atlantic. Nose is grape juice concentrate and beef jerky, teriyaki, some smoke, berries and a clay/mineral earthiness. A remarkable freshness too. Bright red fruit on the palate. Ripe, without compromised acidity. Silky texture and fine tannins. Reminds me of Cote Rotie but with a boost in acid and saltiness. Drinking beautifully now though another 10-15 years in the bottle probably wouldn’t hurt! — 3 days ago

Casa Ferreirinha (Sogrape Vinhos)

Vinha Grande Douro Red Blend 2016

On sale for $14, excellent value. Lush dark fruit, vanilla, charcoal, and leather. No rush to drink, this still has many more years ahead of it. Love these Portuguese wines, great value overall. — 5 days ago

Quinta do Crasto

Reserva Old Vines ( Vinhas Velhas ) Douro Red Blend 2015

A sexy half bottle: dark chocolate and sour cherry aromas (violet on the nose). Potent, concentrated and with a persistent aftertaste. — 19 hours ago

Esporão

Reserva Aragonês Blend 2016

A little more plummy and jammy than the previous esporao which is less to my taste but still huge tannins and utterly delicious. An ace bottle for a birthday! — 16 days ago

Familia Carvalho Martins

Contra Golpe Douro Touriga Nacional 2017

Ok, this was actually quite good. Young fruit, good balance and acidity. Very enjoyable. Probably better in a year or two after settling down a bit. — 12 days ago
