Colares Chitas Reserva Velho Ramisco 2009

Ramisco varietal, borne in a sand terroir of Portugal region beginning to be overrun by hotels. It simply has become a favorite wine quickly; not cheap( about 40$ & up, usually they are 500ml bottles), gains in intensity with air. Fine grained tannins, wild red berries, lithe acidity. Low alcohol & has the rep for long range storage. God, I love this stuff. Very rare wine too, which of course adds to the allure. — 13 days ago

Dominó Colar Tinto Red Blend 2018

From my new hot spot. Light red but not Ramisco. Has real snap & freshness. Let it settle into itself, & like a nervous nelly the cranberry puckering acidity becomes more rounded. — 3 days ago

Reserva Tinto Collares Ramisco 1969

OK, this is 50+ year old Ramisco from Collares (note old spelling with 2 “ll”), grown in the SAND west of Lisbon, leather, earthy, just amazingly complex, balanced, with an incredible finish, a hand-carried bottle purchased at the winery 1 year ago, no way one smells and tastes this incredible Ramisco and (blind) would guess it’s a 1969 vintage, just incredible!!! — 4 months ago

Carcavelos Ramisco 1991

Unbelievable! A statement in the beginning, followed by roasted chestnuts that are maybe a little candied; beautiful lingering finish that is warm to the soul. Simply divine! — 2 years ago

Villa Oeiras

Superior Carcavelos Ramisco

Very dry Sherry like. Non vintage 15 year old blend. Maderized. Starts with a flig undertone, and finishes with a bit of an orangey flavor. Dry and comfortable. Great with Portuguese sheep cheese and fruit desert. — 4 months ago

Collares Genuino Premiado 2011

A unicorn wine presents a unicorn experience. First, all hail the Ramisco varietal, explained to me as singular to this area of Portugal and soon to be extinct given the level of building development there. From the label: “the Colares wine región was defined in 1908. The vineyards are planted in the dunes between the hills of sintra and the Atlantic Ocean “. The nose alone is worth the price of admission: vibrates with intensity, red fruits, cut flowers. And this was after drinking an intensely vibrant Syrah by Herve Souhaut!
Taste is somewhere between a medium bodied Rioja and a deep Mercia from Ribera Sacra, minus any traces of barrel aging. Utterly seductive mouthfeel, not unctuous or cloying, almost chewy. An intense pitch of acidity higher up on the register ( hence the Ribera analogy). 38$ for a 500ml bottle. A reminder why sharing wines like these with your homeboys is the only way to live.

A dry mouth feel but plush and deep. I need more and so I bought some.
