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.

One of the rarest and most unique wine in the world, DOC Colares - ungrafted vines planted on the characteristic sandy soils from this region, happy to drink history - this 1931 red kept a great freshness (even better than 1969) , a very nice aged wine, and amazing price, I'm a fan of Colares 😃

Portuguese Jura!? Slightly oxidative, saline whites... Nebbiolo-esque reds. Yowsa!

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
