Collares Ramisco 2008

Mason Balistreri

I had to open one last bottle of Colares before I left Portugal. These are very rare wines made of the ramisco grape, grown on the sandy soil without trellising. Dried cherry fruit on the nose with a hint of cinnamon. At a decade old, you would never guess. The level of tannin and acidity is at a level here that makes Barolo look like baby stuff. #portugalwine #colares — 2 years ago

Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noirs from #Portugal are a rarity (fortunately since Portugal has over 400 original grape varieties) but this one is probably the best. It's coming from some of the most western vineyards in Europe. A gorgeous seaside location know for it's sand planted vines (#Colares). #winelover #portugal — 4 years ago
