Aphros

Vinhão 2017

Purple and dense in colour. Plums, cherries, blueberries, violets, vanilla and wool mittens.
Fresh acidity, low in tannins and a rather short finish. Youthful and interesting. Very much a red version of what you find in a vinho verde

Quinta da Boa Esperanca

Handcrafted Fernao Pires 2016

Sous vide scallops, nice and warm December weekend in LA! — a day ago

Niepoort (Vinhos) S.A.

Charme Douro Red Blend 2014

Some bourbon and oak on nose. Very aromatic, elegant and conplex on nose (which grows and expands lots with aeration). High in acidity but not with too harsh tannins. It’s quite delicate in fact.
Has a port wine character in aromas with a rich spiciness, pepper, rum, raisins, licorice. Fruit reminds of a cabernet sauvignon with lots of blackcurrants. Very salivating and fresh.!

Sogrape Vinhos

Silk & Spice Touriga Nacional-Alicante Bouschet Blend

Nose of fresh raspberry, berry, spice, a bit vanilla, a bit flower and honey note, and interestingly some notes that remind me of sweet Riesling. Taste is quite sweet, with juicy grapes, spice, and again some honey kind of Riesling note. Aftertaste of some more vanilla, tobacco leaves, a bit tannins, and zesty sweetness. Interesting. — 23 days ago

Castelo do Vinteiro

Castelo do Vinteiro Douro 2015

Dense and dark red 👁️
Cherry, pear and some petrol 👃
High acidity.
Lemon tartness at first with some dark red fruit with hints of cloves and nutmeg. After a bit the soft and pleasent wood dryness arrives.
Medium body and a Light dry 🎯

Paired well with tomato pie, Arabic salad with tahini and a variety of latkes.

A pleasant one with good vfm (65 nis as part of a half case of Portuguese variety)

That strong tartness would make it a very gastronomic wine. Would work with everything.

Last try of the different Portuguese varaiety. All were more then decent and dead cheap.
