Vale De Capucha

Fossil Fernão Pires Blend 2018

Bready in its breadth and then you take a breath and get the apricot and maybe some mango peel.

Whoosh. After understanding my palate, the homies at Frankly have listened and pointed me to a wonderful bottle. What an adventure. I feel seen.

Waxy, slightly effervescent. Refreshing. I’ll say it again. Refreshing as can be. Well worth the wait after a long run in the heat. Edging on orange, but stopping short of zesty and taking a detour to somewhere along Chenin’s spectrum. Minerality.

Really love this idiosyncratic blend. Something new.

Buy the ticket, take the ride type shiiii.

Quinta dos Carvalhais

Dão Colheita Encruzado 2015

Made only in exceptional years, an excellent example of the Touriga Nacional grape, medium Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, herb and floral spice, aged for 12 months in new and used French oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with notes of cedar, herb and baking spice. Fine ripe tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, oak and earthy spice. — 5 days ago

Casta Baga Bruto Espumante

Dirty, dusty red fruit - red currant, raspberry, rose hip, but also a whiff of blood orange with a mineral core underneath, fresh & slightly funky.
Bone dry on the palate, with persistent bubbles, juicy fruit and a slight touch of tannins. The irony, bloody character of Baga shines through.
Unorthodox, delicious stuff. Brilliant with food.

Casa Ferreirinha (Sogrape Vinhos)

Quinta da Leda Douro Red Blend 2009

Needed a wine tonight to stand up to the bold flavors of a spanish marinated chicken with gondolas & cauliflower rice. This wine worked showing its rich, balanced dark fruits with notes of earth, leather, spice & tobacco — 10 days ago
