Shockingly youthful—most who tasted blind guessed 15-20 years old. Earthy, tart cherry, black tea, smokey BBQ, sea salt. Really fun to try having tasted (and loved) more recent vintages

A unique nose of rye bread, BBQ sauce, anise, cherry fruit, and tar. Harvested just after Santana took the stage at Woodstock.

A great matured and aged wine lost much freshness but nice complexity and focused ripe fruits, savoury and nice tannins - Colares is a surviving appellation, hard conditions, sandy soil and ungrafted plats - a little magic of very fair price for aged wines 😃👍

OK, this is 50+ year old Ramisco from Collares (note old spelling with 2 “ll”), grown in the SAND west of Lisbon, leather, earthy, just amazingly complex, balanced, with an incredible finish, a hand-carried bottle purchased at the winery 1 year ago, no way one smells and tastes this incredible Ramisco and (blind) would guess it’s a 1969 vintage, just incredible!!!

Amazingly fresh for a ‘69! Chalky but nice fruit, berries. Perfect with wood pigeon.

1969 vintage. Bomb. Salty like anchovy paste on saltines. Caribbean jerk marinade and Epsom salt. Living, breathing. Continuing to develop as I write this. Take me to church.
