Quinta De Viluco

Quinta do Crasto

'Crasto' Douro Red Blend 2014

Densely extracted, purple-red. Floral, violet, butter and wood in nose. Plum, cherry, blackberry and chocolate in mouth, black currant finish. Later, earthy. Slight seed tannin bitterness, tactile prickliness and moderate (and increasing with aeration) astringency in aftertaste. North America could use more decent Portuguese reds like this. — 2 days ago

Quinta da Boavista

Torre de Tavares Dão Jaén

Jaen by any other other name is Mencia. This was the sommelier’s pairing with Aljentejo style pork with fava beans. Bright red cherry and cassis fruit with a strong dollop of creamy barrel treatment. Supple tannins with fresh acidity to the cranberry and red cherry fruit. The oak is that is present on palate has mostly been absorbed. — 3 days ago

Adriano Ramos Pinto

Reserva Duas Quinta Douro Touriga Nacional Blend 1995

A delightfully mature nose with dried and fresh red fruit, loamy soil, allspice and hint of creamy vanilla. Palate is lively but tannins are gaining the upper hand. This most have been a monster in its youth. Cassis, cranberry, red cherry fruit mingle with lots of spice. Finish is had fresh and dried red fruit notes. It is missing just a bit of depth. This was a dynamite suggestion from the sommelier and a lovely match to the amazing interpretation of suckling pig. — 5 days ago

Quinta de Couselo

Rosal Rías Baixas Albariño Blend

90 Albariño, 5 Caino, 5 Loureiro; Rosal is a tiny appellation situated right where the Mino River empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Intensely saline, almost iodized. Densely textured, with powerful aromas/flavors of wet stones, sea spray, ripe citrus. Tiny bit of trapped CO2 + bracing (and appropriate) acidity. #rosal #ríasbaixas #couselo — 5 days ago
