Royal Oporto (Real Companhia Velha)

Carvalhas Douro Branco

Bright yellow gold. Nose of yellow apple and white flowers. Medium full palate is led by crisp yellow apple and quince layered with white flowers and fresh straw. Firm, almost stony acidity from entry to finish, is belied by the deep color. Firm white flesh fish, roasted or fried poultry, salad greens with apples, and a wide range of “classic” white wine foods will shine with this one, but it’s still friendly enough to be a sipper (but who pays this much for a sipper?). Drink now through 2025. — 18 days ago

Oh man! There’s some Royal Anne cherry mid-palate that sneaks up on you! Love this!

Madeira Terrantez 1954

Cork took me a while, that’s why I’m not a Sommelier. Gorgeous honey color, almost amber. Caramel, honey, roasted nuts and dried tropical fruit on the nose. Full body, with high acid and alcohol on the minutes long finish. This is great. — 6 days ago

Exactly what you want from a red wine. Fruit, a little earth, a little flesh, comforting tannins. — 15 days ago
