2014 Quinta da Aveleda Loureiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde Regional Minho

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Aveleda's estate-grown blend of loureiro (80%) and alvarinho is bright and juicy in 2014. Base notes of stone fruit flavor underlay this wine's floral scents of green fig and mouthwatering flavors of white grapefruit. Its coastal freshness will match shrimp with asparagus." 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Produced from the vines that surround the family house at Quinta da Aveleda, this is an exemplary Vinho Verde. Dry and crisp, with richness as well as freshness, it is a bright, tight and lightly mineral wine to drink now." K&L Notes: A perennial staff and customer favorite, this Vinho Verde continu...

Unctuous and succulent on the finish, which oozes with molten chocolate. Best after 2025." (10/2013) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Red and black berries bring out the richness of the year, masking the seriously tannic structure.

Caves Messias Santola "Crab Wine" Vinho Verde

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!

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.

2014 Dom Diogo "Padeiro" Rosé Vinho Verde

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Rosé Padeiro Dom Diogo comes in semi-dry at 11.8 grams per liter of residual sugar. It has 12% alcohol and a bit of fizz. Despite the listed sugar, this wine's acidity balances it out very well, allowing it to seem only a bit fruity, while projecting a crisp finish with surprising tension as it warms. Fresh and focused, this also seems rather solid for the type, but there is one quibble–a touch of smoke on the nose, which I presumed to be somewhat reductive. That may get better in time; it doesn't destroy the wine even now. As it aired out, it m ...Read More »

2013 Casa Ferreirinha "Papa Figos" Douro

This delicious Douro red shows hallmark Douro aromatics of dark fruits, licorice and spices. On the palate, the flavors are surprisingly fresh and bright, particularly given the usual heft and lower acidity of the region's wines. Two likely contributing factors to this style are Casa Ferreirinha's experience as the original innovators in the production of fine Douro dry reds (Barca Velha, for example) and their light touch in the cellar. Simply a delicious bottle of red wine for the price.

2013 Quinta do Crasto Superior Douro

Quinta do Crasto is one of the pioneering wineries in the Douro. Along with other "Douro boys" producers they have been working hard to focus on farming their single quintas and marketing themselves as well as their region as an area capable of producing delicious, distinctive wines. Rich, dark fruited aromas, with hints of candied violet and camphor, lead to a similar palate. which, in the relatively fresher 2013 vintage, also shows some crisp red fruits. This is a delicious Douro red to introduce anyone to the charm of the Douro valley.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Branco Reserva Planalto (Casa Ferreirinha) is a white bargain even though it is a mass-market wine (about 125,000 cases). It is an unoaked blend of 35% Viosinho; 15% each of Malvasia Fina, Gouveio, Códega and Arinto; and 5% Moscatel.

1990 Caves Sao Joao Reserva (Previously $80)

Here we have an old school blend of Bairrada and Dao, a tradition that used to be common in its day and is preserved by the decidedly old school Caves Sao Joao. Leathery aromas also show nuances of maraschino cherries, a drawer of spices which perhaps have not been replaced in a decade or more, and an elegant, chewy salt licorice note. On the palate, this wine is Portugal's answer to old school Nebbiolo: linear, rather strict and taut, but ultimately tasty.
