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

Lots of VA which unfortunately detracts from other beauty. Some barnyard, cedar, sour cherry.

Saline, Barnyard mossy aroma with bright pom and cranberries that fade to deeper plum balanced finish. Awesome
