How can I count the ways: so fresh, so alive, that this 100% Ramisco is really in its infancy, yet delicious drunk now. Everything is small boned & small grained about it. Like just picked wild raspberries & blackberries, with some leaves & stems not sorted out. So high toned yet a deeper, incessant, sour plum like baseline.

CDC approved interior dinner with my homey. Time to celebrate. Think aged Rioja but super charged with acidity. Collares is One of the great growingly extinct wine species so please support it. Briefly decanted to rid it of some decayed cork but otherwise not too much sediment if at all. Iron red rim, tertiary flavors of Unami but still so fresh & vibrant, with crushed red fruits & currants. I’ve read the half life on Collares wines can be as long as a 1rst growth Bordeaux.

Wonderfully deep and rich red fruit. A 31? Come on. Like a fresh Portuguese wine. Crazy. Deep purple fruit. Fresh and lovely

Like a cross between Gamay and Aglianico. Super fragrant. 11.5%. Superb slippery fruit. Amazing length and freshness. Made from the Romasco grape.

From the Ramisco grape in Portugal. Soft silky tannins, dried roses, earth, black plum, evolves a bit sweaty after some time in in the glass. Incredibly unique wine.

One of the most unique and compelling red wines of the world. Bretty and saline with a firm core of purple fruit and Asian spices. Reminds me of Côte Rotie and Jura trousseau.

2006. Rust and leather and toffee and pomegranate and orange blossom and barnyard and now take me now. The tannins serve only to render it more appetizing at this juncture. So great.

What a compelling wine... It just keeps evolving. Definitely needs a decant or simply patience and a good cellar. This bottle makes me want to learn everything I can about Colares. Truly memorable. 2006 vintage.
