Phaunus

Phaunus Palhete Loureiro Vinhão 2016

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.

Quinta do Vale das Escadinhas

Quinta da Falorca Garrafeira Dão Red Blend 2009

the nose is much more reserved than the ‘07 yet alludes to the same ~ palate is much broader, fuller and deeper yet still has a striking mid-palate core of fruit that melds back into the mocha oak tannins — 2 days ago

Douro Red Blend 2000

Earthy and smooth drinking! We’ve been saving this bottle to drink on our one year anniversary and it is more delicious than ever. Must decant for at least one hour to get it perfect. Smells like cherry, dirt, and oak. Delish! — 2 hours ago

Grand'Arte Vinho Regional Lisboa Touriga Nacional 2009

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.

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.
