90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Branco Quinta Da Aveleda is a screwcapped blend of 70% Loureiro and 30% Alvarinho, unoaked and coming in at 11.5% alcohol. There is no added carbonation. This was seen earlier this year, but it was tasted only a few weeks after bottling. It is worth revisiting with some time in the bottle. This is typically a super value, real wine at a bargain-basement price. So, too, this year. It seems even better now. This is bright and crisp, but the wonderful fruit is the reason you buy this. Expressive and exuberant, it tastes great, yet the fruit is perf ...Read More »

Produced from Loureiro and Pederña grapes grown in the granitic soils of the Vinho Verde region, the Santola (or as we here are calling it, "the crab wine") is a delicious, spritely and refreshing white. It doesn't get much more traditional, thirst-quenching or seasonally perfect then this wine. Delicious, low in alcohol, slightly fizzy and way too easy to drink!
Herdade do Rocim is located in the lower Alentejo region (southern Portugal). This property got its start in 2000 focusing primarily on local grapes like Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet. They also work with several international grapes like Cabernet and Syrah, which is becoming more common in the Alentejo region. Catarina Viera and her team strive to create wines that are elegant, complex and strong. She is inspired by her love and respect for her grandparents, her father and her family, her connection with nature, and a true and unwaver... Read More »
90 points Wine Spectator: "*#39 on the Top 100 Wines of 2015, and a Best Value* A taut, sinewy style, with notes of slate and white pepper to the roasted plum and dried red berry flavors. Medium-grained tannins emerge on the snappy finish, showing ferrous accents. Drink now through 2020. (KM)" K&L Notes: Relatively speaking for this region, 2013 was a cooler, fresher vintage in the Douro. This WS Top 100 wine shows these vintage traits in the wine, with gently extracted dark fruits and subtle hints of licorice. It's a great example of a Douro red for a value price. (Joe Manekin, K&L Portugues... Read More »
A perennial staff and customer favorite, this Vinho Verde continues to deliver the goods, the fizzy, citrus-drenched, delicious goods. If you're looking for a poolside, picnic, or patio sipper, this wine never disappoints.
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Alvarinho is unoaked and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. As fans of this classic bottling know, it is very dry, most definitely not fizzy and typically a great value. It is glorious, expressive and fresh in this vintage. In the long, proud history of this fine estate, this seems to be as good or better as any standard, unoaked Alvarinho they have produced. It is also one of the best unoaked young Alvarinhos I've had. We'll see what the future brings--it won't be an unqualified success for Soalheiro if it does not hold well for a decade or much more-- ...Read More »
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Reserva Old Vines is a fine success. Granting that I don't have this side-by-side with the 2011, the difference doesn't seem to be as great as you might think on paper. Winemaker Manuel Lobo said Crasto maintained quality here by deleting three typically-used vineyards that underperformed in the vintage. It seems to have worked nicely so far. Hopefully, it will reward cellaring, too. This opens very elegantly. It is beautifully balanced, with a feel of sophistication and refinement--which is pretty much how most of Crasto's wines show these days ...Read More »
Wine Spectator: "Great nutty aromas come from the glass and follow into the palate of this sweeter style of white Port. It is rich, packed with almonds and a tangy orange zest edge." (8/2010)
Jancis Robinson: "20% Touriga Franca, 15% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Barroca, 35% Tinta Roriz. Unoaked. Deep cherry. Peppery, dusty bright dark fruit. Light, gentle but with very fresh acidity - all natural. Moreish and juicy. Surprisingly persistent. Has the dusty/rocky character of the Douro – unadulterated by oak and full of life and straightforward fruit pleasure without excess sweetness. Given how well the 1989 has aged, and that the wine is made in very much the same style as in those early years, it may well age even longer than I have suggested. (JH)" (3/2015) K&L Notes: This...

Produced from a blend of Aragones, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Touriga Nacional, this new Altejo arrival is delicious! Aged in tanke, the red and purple skinned fruit flavors are generous, yet slightly firm and edgy as well - tasty, well balanced red from the Alentejo.
A delicious, higher-end Vinho Verde for those who would like to try something a step up from the under $10 examples in this emerging category. Made from 70% Alvarhinho and 30% Trajadura, it's just plain delicious, with snappy green fruits, citrus and just a hint of dissolved CO2 providing a refreshing, subtle effervescence.
A blend of Arinto and fernao pires, estate grown in clay limestone soils dating to the Jurassic period, in the Alenquer region of western Portugal, this delicious white is fermented with native yeasts and sees extended time in tank on its lees for added complexity. Ripe citrus and hints of pink grapefruit aromas lead to a similarly flavored palate, with loads of freshness and personality.
Wine Enthusiast: "A dry wine, firmly tannic, although also with acidity and black currant fruit. Spices and licorice add interest, while the tannins finish this attractive wine." (12/2011) Wine Spectator: "Lots of sweet dark plum and sweet cherry flavors dominate, with plenty of milk chocolate. Clean and balanced on the straightforward finish." (12/2010) K&L Notes: From the Producer: "Six Grapes is one of Graham's original Port marques. It is a big-hearted wine, sourced from the same vineyards (essentially Quinta dos Malvedos and Quinta das Lages) that contribute to Graham's famed Vintage Ports in 'decl... Read More »
94 points James Suckling: "A gorgeous tawny with dried figs, caramel, dried raisins and coffee beans. Full-bodied, sweet and delicious. This shows such length and beauty. I love the crème caramel and cooked apple tart on the finish. Some pecan pie. Crazy." (10/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2013* A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes. The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity." (10/2013) K&L Notes: Graham's was founded in 1820 in... Read More »
Produced in the Portalegre area, which lies in the north of the Alentejo DO, this red wine has the delicious approachable fruit I expect from Alentejo, with lots of unexpected freshness as well. The granitic terroir here produces a savory wine with flavors of mixed berries, a plummy richness and terrific balance. Touriga Naciona, Trincadeira, Aragones and Alicante Boucschet. (Joe Manekin, K&L Portuguese & Spanish wine buyer)
98 points Wine Spectator: "This draws you in, with aromas of warm halva and toasted pistachio giving way to a wide range of buckwheat, toasted sesame, walnut husk, menthol and licorice root notes that refuse to break down in the mouth. Exhibits remarkable length, with ample viscosity matched by steely tension, putting this in rarified air. Drink now. From Portugal.—J.M." (11/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1967 Very Old Single Harvest Port is Taylor's new release in its ongoing 50-year Colheita program (or, as they prefer to say, "single harvest tawny port"). This should just recently have been released ...Read More »
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine is rich, ripe and fruity with good acidity as well as a bite of spirit and old-wood aging. It is well balanced, keeping the freshness of a 10-Year-Old while also showing good signs of its wood aging. Just what a 10-Year-Old should be. (RV)" (12/2014) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This has a zesty, sweet floral aroma, with delicate, well-spiced flavors of apple tart, flan and cocoa powder. The plush, mouthfilling finish of cream, vanilla and raspberry is fresh and balanced. (KM)" (12/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at John E. Fells portfolio tasting. This 10-Year Old tawny has a vibrant, citrus nos ...Read More »
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Slightly richer than the Charleston Sercial, the Boston Bual boasts knockout aromas of toasted nut oil, orange peel and hints of dark honey or maple syrup. Despite the extra weight and sweetness, it's not cloying at all the finish is mouthwatering and long. (JC)" (11/2006) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright amber. Deep aromas of cherry pit, candied orange, toffee and molasses, lifted by a note of dried rose. Chewy in texture, with dry-edged nut and burnt orange flavors, a touch of molasses sugar and good back-end grip. Quite sweet but the wine's acidity adds ...Read More »
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* An elegant tawny, perfumed with soft tannins and a good edge of wood acidity and spirit. The wine is dry, densely flavored, tasting mature, showing a good balance between young sweetness and age, with everything well integrated. (RV)" (12/2008) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This has a bright aromas, with notes of lemon zest and flavors of apricot, peach tart and caramel. The long finish echoes the fresh fruit, with lots of butterscotch and nut notes. Drink now. (KM)" (12/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Much paler than the 10 Year Old, like the skin of Victoria plums. Gentle apricot aroma. This i ...Read More »
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. (RP)" (1/1989) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, mint and violet. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and lots of berry and cherry fruit. Very fruity and fresh. Long and lively. Delicious now, but w ...Read More »
A reference Portuguese producer based in the UNESCO heritage village of Evora, Cartuxa produces this wine with a blend of Aragones (Tempranillo), Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro and Trincadeiro. It is generously fruited and broad shouldered, but with balanced acidity to the darker berry fruits. A delicious Alentejo red, and particularly a great choice for fans of California Rhone blends.
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This rich wine is balanced and ripe, with spice, sweet sultana and raisin fruitiness and a light shot of acidity. The aftertaste brings out fresh red fruits that are cut by the spirit and acidity to leave a full feeling in the mouth. (RV)" (12/2014) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is filled to the brim with rich dried fruit and spice flavors, including apricot and mango, with vibrant white chocolate and hazelnut notes. The finish is sumptuous. (KM)" (12/2010) K&L Notes: I think we have found a new favorite, not only in the 10-year Tawny category, but possibly in our entire fortified sweet wine c... Read More »
Sandra Tavares of Wine & Soul is a Portuguese superstar, with plenty of mentions in the press, including Wine Spectator and a winemaker of the year award in one of Portugal's premier wine magazines. This Douro white is a single vineyard blend of Viosinho, Codega do larinho, Rabigato and Gouveio . With its bright, golden fruit flavors, including some starfruit notes, and well balanced oak, this reminds me of very good Pessac (perhaps SHL with a lot less oak...and a much lower price!) Delicious, fantastic white that shows Portugal's potential to produce s... Read More »
98 points Decanter: "Quince marmalade on the nose and palate. Refined, soft and seamless with the merest dusting of tannin on the finish. Worthy Platinum Best in Category at the DWWA." (12/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Always great, this is softer, less intense than in the past. But there is still great richness, and power as well as smoothness, burnt caramel blending well with the spirit, and finishing with its inimitable fresh acidity. (RV)" (11/2007) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, smooth and polished, exhibiting an array of dried apricot, pear and guava flavors that are accented by plenty of apple wood smoke notes. The lush ...Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'Black' is a new blend produced from classic varieties that do not make it into the Quinta do Noval vintage. There are ripe blackberries, tar, smoke and orange liqueur on the nose that takes time to open. The palate is medium-bodied, very sleek on the entry, fleshy black fruits, sloe, spice and just a hint of white pepper, leading to a very focused finish. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2010. (NM-Wine Journal)" (3/2010) Jancis Robinson: "This is made from Quinta do Noval's younger vines. The back label urges us to serve it chilled as an aperitif or with dark chocolate at any ...Read More »
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** The Historic Series are simply great Madeiras at reasonable prices. The Charleston Sercial is the driest of the collection, offering nutty aromas tinged with honey, caramel and maple syrup. Dried figs, honey and candied citrus flavors mark the palate, which is wonderfully smooth. The long finish features racy yet balanced acidity. (JC)" (11/2006) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium amber. Gingerbread, orange zest, clove, blond tobacco and honey on the nose. Spicy citrus and poached pear flavors are lifted by zesty acidity and show a gentle smoky quality on the ba ...Read More »
Located in the drier Douro Superior, Quinta do Romeu is a family owned quinta that grows organically cultivated grapes and olives. Their wines are intense yet graceful; while they are certainly full of fruit they do not have quite the high impact in terms of extract and oak that perhaps define some others who are working hard to continue to put Portuguese red wines on the map. While 2012 was a very warm, dry vintage (even in the Douro where they are used to warm and dry), Quinta do Romeu managed to produce this lovely, brightly fruited red. It's a great ... Read More »
95 points Wine & Spirits: "People in Douro argue over the optimal age for a Tawny. As an outsider, it’s easy to know it when you taste it. There’s no mistaking the freshness in this wine, though it lives mysteriously in complete harmony with its aged character, provoking an immediate sense of pleasure (the yum response) followed by an extended moment of meditation. Are you tasting dried cherries? Smelling the scent of mushrooms in the forest? The fresh zest of an orange or the mineral sense of tannins turned to silk? Whatever that fragrant, delicate thing may be, it’s likely to ca ...Read More »
Wine Spectator: "Smooth and lush, with loads of glazed apricot, maple, vanilla and cream flavors. Fresh, focused finish. (KM)" (11/2006)
94 points Wine & Spirits: "A complex and satisfying Tawny, this sits on the cusp of maturity with freshness continuing to infuse its deepening flavors. That freshness arrives in bold scents of orange zest and juicy citrus flavors, while the maturity mellows those flavors into layers of Marcona almond, date and sweet oak-smoke notes. It finishes with a hint of schist in the tannins. For fruit and cheese at the end of the meal." (12/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 and comes in at 111 grams per liter of residual sugar. On first taste, this was simply Taylor: big ...Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2014 with 105.23 grams per liter of residual sugar. Easily the 10 with the most weight in the Fladgate group's lineup this issue, it is a rather powerful 10 year old Tawny with plenty of pop, the biggest and baddest of the trio (Fonseca, Croft and this). There is very fine concentration of flavor for a 10 year old Tawny. If I had a quibble, the alcohol shows at times, especially early on and rather notably when drunk a little too warm. (Around 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a lot better than room temperature most of ...Read More »
94 points James Suckling: "The Warre was beautiful now. It showed lots of dried fruits and Christmas cake character on the nose and palate. Medium sweet. It was full-bodied with loads of flavor and an intensely flavorful finish. It was perfect to drink." (6/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Deep garnet. Very pretty plum and berry aromas, with hints of honey and toffee. Turns to custard. Full-bodied, sweet and fresh. Firm tannins, with elegance and balance. Will age for a long time, but ready. Generous, but subtle. (JS, Web-2008)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good ...Read More »
93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium amber with a green rim. Aromas of burnt orange, tobacco, toffee and herbs, with a hint of potpourri adding an exotic component. Broader and deeper than the Charleston, offering sappy orange marmalade, chestnut honey and toffee flavors underscored by tangy acidity. Shows a sweet, nutty quality on the smoky, gently spicy finish. I like this wine's heft and thrust. (JR)" (6/2011) K&L Notes: These are the most affordable, representative examples of classic Madeira available. A collaboration between the importer and Barbeito's Ricardo Diogo Vasconcelos Freitas, th... Read More »
Luis Pato, aka "Mr. Baga" (so named for his mastery of the tough to grow baga grape varietal) makes some incredibly good, way under the radar wines in the Bairrada region of Portugal, near the Atlantic coast. He is a strong believer that the Atlantic climate, along with his ideal clay and limestone based soil, creates wines that are balanced and capable of long bottle aging. This bottling is composed of 100% baga grapes. It shows tense, cherry fruit flavors with mineral herbal tones, and is undoubtedly a wine for the cellar.This wine is a little bit har... Read More »
Fresh strawberry, raspberry and citrius fruit flavors combine to make this rosé highly gulpable! It's fun and fruit forward, but with admirable cut and precision. One of our favorite cooperatives on the Iberian peninsula produces this lovely wine. Charcuterie, highest quality cured anchovies (Atlantic anchovies, of course!), cheeses and other snacks would all pair terrifically with this rosé. (Joe Manekin, K&L Portuguese & Spanish wine buyer)
Located in the relatively warmer Basto sub-zone of the Vinho Verde, Quinta da Raza is making some delicious, original examples of Vinho Verde, exploring grape varieties beyond the usual array of grapes in the region. In this case, Avesso grapes add rich stone fruit to the mid-palate, and there is none of the typical Vinho Verde fizz, just pure apricot driven deliciousness !
The coastal, cool Atlantic influenced region of Bairrada has a strong tradition in producing Champagne method sparkling wines. As this rosé from Sidonio de Sousa shows, these are serious sparklers! A nose of blood oranges and red berries leads to a nicely dry, restrained palate, with a soft bead and delicious flavors. This truly hits the spot.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lucid dark ruby color, the Bin 27 has a sweet nose of raisin and fig, complemented by copious dark cherry and black plum. The palate is sweet and spicy on the entry with that fig motif continuing with plush dark chocolate infused black fruit. The finish is short and abrupt, but there is a lingering peppery note to keep customer satisfied. The Bin 27 forms a perfect introduction to the delights of Port. (NM)" (2/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Full, rich and fruity wine, enticingly aromatic, with strawberry fruits and an easy, just tannic edge. The wine is soft, ripe, the fruits fin ...Read More »
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977.The 1977, still a baby, is fabulously scented, very rich and concentrated, and has a potential longevity of at least another 30-50 years. (RP)" (1/1989) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Medium brick-red. Aromas of coffee, prune and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a licorice, berry, custard and cream character. Firm and racy. Long and delicious. Firm and beautiful. Just ready now. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Best from 2008 through 2016. (JS, Web-2008)" ...Read More »
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* The sweetest and richest in the Historic series, the New York Malmsey unfolds slowly in the glass, gradually revealing layers of depth and flavor. Coffee, toffee and date notes emerge, followed by earthy, almost truffley flavors. Powerful and assertive on the long finish. (JC)" (11/2006) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium amber. Powerfully scented bouquet combines cherry compote, cola, molasses, pipe tobacco and brown sugar. Lush and expansive in the mouth, offering sweet pit fruit and orange marmalade flavors and a deeper note of espresso. Clings tenaciously on the ...Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Late Bottled Vintage Port is an unfiltered blend of 55% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Roriz, 5% Sousão and 5% Tinto Cão bottled in April, 2014. It comes in at 106 grams per liter of residual sugar. This opens sweet and luscious, with the considerable power lurking underneath. There are only hints of what is going to happen. Hold this puppy open for a couple of hours--or, better yet, try it the next day--and you'll see the lurking structure. It doesn't stint on intensity of flavor, though. The next day it is just beautiful, show ...Read More »
What a fantastic, lighter traditional red from this Vinoh Verde cooperative in Monçzo. A blend of Alvarelho, Pedal and Vinhao, this lovely light bodied red is fizzy, with pretty dark cherry fruit, damson and violet notes Dry, original and lovely red. 10.5% ABV
Inventory: Redwood City
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Late Bottled Vintage Port was bottled in 2016 with a long cork. Focused and precise, this traditional LBV is notable for its subtle concentration and power. It's not at all jammy, but the expressive fruit lingers and makes it seem richer than it is on opening while the wine's inherent freshness cuts through the mid-palate and gives it a lively feel. The structure is actually better than the fruit--apart from the crisp feel, this has a real backbone. That supports the fruit beautifully and it was even more apparent after some six hours open. Not ...Read More »
96 points Decanter: "A troublesome vintage for many shippers, but Fonseca 1985 never fails to impress: tight-knit, dense and minty with a core of concentration and pure berry fruit. Succulent, wonderfully fresh and vibrant at 30 years old. Peacock’s tail of a finish. A real ‘wow’ of a wine that promises to last a lifetime. (RM)" (11/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Fonseca is still youthful in appearance with hardly any ageing on the rim. The nose offers kirsch, sloes and Christmas cake. With time, there are subtle notes of dried fig and dates beginning to emerge and add to the complexity. The ...Read More »

Deep dark ruby-purple, with rich floral and violet aromas, full-bodied, with masses of strawberry flavors, full tannins and a long finish.

100 points Wine Spectator: "*#1 Wine of 1997, Cellar Selection* Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port.

90 points Wine Spectator: "A plush style, offering flavors of hazelnut, dried apricot and butterscotch, showing good complexity and length. The long finish is richly spiced and smoky, with vanilla and marzipan notes. Drink now. (KM)" (12/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "This has quite a bite with acidity and a strong cut of spirit. Flavors of dried raisins and sultana put it on the dry side of aged tawny. At the end, spice and the wood aging dominate this austere wine. (RV)" (12/2014)
93 points Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try. (Web Only—2008)" Decanter: "Tight, concentrated maturing fruit. Full, concentrated, sweet, complex, enduring length." (12/2005) Jancis Robinson: "Still going very strong from a bottle via a decanter.

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "An old, mature wine, but one that has kept its ripeness and richness. The concentration is so intense that one glass is almost enough (except it tastes so good). There are walnuts, bitter chocolate and a delicious clean aftertaste. (RV)" (8/2006) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A savory style, fresh-tasting despite its age, with a concentrated array of dried apricot, pear, lavender and sage flavors supported by vibrant acidity. This is very citrusy, presenting a long, refined finish filled with mineral and allspice details. (KM, Web-2013)" 92 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given."

Jancis Robinson: "Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, including 20% old vines. Winemakers Luis Pato and Francisco Montenegro. Darkish cherry. Lightly spiced and peppery dark, blackberry fruit, smells a little dusty, tastes dry and fresh with fine dark fruit. Cool, dry and pure-fruited. Mouthwatering and harmonious, lightish on the mid palate – making it very drinkable and with the tannins suggesting it would be a great supper wine."
