Quinta de Alcube


Alcube in Portugal is one of my favorite wines! Their Rośe is great and fresh! Perfect for a summer night outside. — 13 days ago


Red Malgas Syrah Blend 2016

A totally complete wine, Sijnn’s flagship red from the South African outpost of Malgas, is an incredibly drinkable wine in 2016 that shares many a semblance with a good quality Saint Joseph.

Syrah dominant, with Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Mourvèdre and a nominal amount of Cabernet Sauvignon completing the unusual blend, it’s expressive from opening and benefits from a two hour decant. Dark, brooding and complex, with an iron core and some bright cherry acidity, it’s a virile wine with good length and a great accompaniment to beef. I’m lucky to have two more bottles and will excitedly try another in a few years’ time.

PS. Sorry for the unwarranted pic of my food but this was last week and I’ve since ditched the bottle.

Quinta do Alqueve (Pinhal da Torre)

Vinho Regional Alentejano Tradicional Red Blend 2012

2012. We were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed this 10 year old, $10 dark red blend (maybe because our cellar is woefully under represented in dry Portuguese wines). Equal parts Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Tinto Roriz; and Castelão. The fruit was deep but not jammy, smooth tannins, and a little acidity and brett to lift up the finish. — 3 months ago
