CV Curriculum Vitae Douro Red Blend 2017

Made from low yielding 90-year old vines, deep Ruby with aromas of red/black fruits and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and plum with cacao, black pepper and floral citrus. Firm tannins on a long finish ending with fruit and mineral character. Nice but needs a few years in big the bottle!! — 3 months ago

Late Bottled Vintage Porto 2014

Dried fruits, licorice, cocoa nibs, and a dusty dry very fine tannic finish that overrides the sweetness. Serene. — 2 months ago

Vinha do Rio Douro Touriga Nacional 2012

The Portuguese are teaching me at least that blending many vines with passion can produce exquisite experiences: refined, good body, smooth Ramon’s for a young wine, robust color l, varying aromas-really changing constantly!!! — 3 years ago

Quinta Vale D. Maria Touriga Nacional 2012

Estate old vineyards over 40 varieties blended or mixed throughout the plots. Nice, soft some spice. Sold out of 2011 which was a great year. Look for this. — 6 years ago

Vinha Da Francisca Douro 2013

17.5/20 (93/100) Аромат чёрного шоколада, ванили, спелых ягод черники и ежевики, чернослива и метола. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и довольно интенсивными, бархатистыми по текстуре танинами. Выраженная шоколадная горчинка во вкусе. Отлично! — 3 months ago

Reserva Porto

Lot No. 16 - don’t know exactly what the “lot #s” mean, and the website is under construction. Vintage? But it isn’t a vintage or LBV. Predominant year in the blend? Bottled in 2018. I found this really unusual, in a good way, for a ruby port. It has a dusky, dry tannic character. But silky smooth. Reminds me of tea and raisins, and maybe dried blueberries. Really like this. — 5 months ago
