Quinta De Viluco

Royal Oporto (Real Companhia Velha)

Quinta das Carvalhas Vinhas Velhas 2013

Really solid Portuguese varietal, Francisca. Nose brings some impressions of Barolo and Cab, but is light on tannins and has a long deep fruit finish that pairs well with a lot of food. Really enjoyed it. Has lots of life ahead of it in the bottle yet but drinking nicely now. — 16 days ago

Quinta do Crasto

Reserva Old Vines ( Vinhas Velhas ) Douro Red Blend 2012

One of the only Portuguese wines that I Have. Still tannic and had to decant for 2 hours. Big concentration with nose on dark fruits. In the mouth acidity is medium high and tannins still stiff. Taste is on blackberries, chocolate, some herbs and oak. Next one not before 7 to 8 years this wine is made tough — 2 days ago

Quinta de Roriz

Prazo de Roriz Douro Red Blend 2015

This is a beautiful blend of several local Douro varieties (and touring nacional playing only a supporting role) with lovely ripe black fruit aromas and plenty of black cherry on a long, well-balanced finish. Wonderfully eclectic wine. — 15 days ago

Quinta do Vallado

Reserva Field Blend Douro Red Blend 2016

I‘m in love with duoro 💕. This has everything a truly great red wine needs. Super dark color, complex aromatics ranging from dark berries and ripe plum over some vanilla-chocolately-notes to tobacco and cedar wood. (The fruit is a little bit in the background though). On the palate it is rich, concentrated, full-bodied, has a mouthwatering minerality, super fine tannins and a very very well integrated alcohol (which, for duoro, isn‘t really high at 14,5%). Also the afterhall is long, warm and minerality driven. Fine drinking now, will be better in 5 years and live up to 10 years maybe even more. — 8 days ago

Quinta das Bágeiras

Garrafeira Baga 2011

No doubt about its excellence. Old-school aromas, from long-aging in old wood and bottle. Not as ethereal as the best Brunellos and more earthly, but just as fine. — 8 days ago

Quinta de Cabriz

Colheita Seleccionada Dão Red Blend 1990

J. Kim

There is no magic, but everything about is solid, authentic aromas, excellent fruit quality, plush texture, sound structure, subtle, appealing oak and overall harmony and integrity. Some might prefer more earth, more personality or stronger oak presence, but it has the focus and the definition most commercial, industrial wines miss. — 3 days ago

Quinta do Regueiro

Reserva Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2016

Linear, salty and holds up to spice. Kinda perfect white wine for any season. Underrated and reasonably priced. — 10 days ago
