2015 Quinta da Aveleda Loureiro-Alvarinho Vinho Verde

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 »

2013 Quinta Vale do Meao "Meandro" Douro

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best of 2016* The name of the wine comes from the huge horseshoe bend of the Douro River that surrounds the Meão vineyards on three sides. This is the second wine of the estate, ripe with tannins and packed with black fruits. (RV)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Meandro do Vale Meão is a blend of 38% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz and 12% miscellaneous grapes aged for 12 months in second and third use Allier barriques.

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!

2015 Herdade do Rocim Touriga Nacional Alentejano

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. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood) The Touriga Nacional is organically grown on clay and sand soils, manually harvested, then barrel aged in French oak for nine months.

2013 Quinta do Crasto "Old Vines" Reserva Douro

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 »

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.

Ramos Pinto 30 Year Old Tawny Port

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 »

2015 Quinta do Regueiro Alvarinho Trajadura Minho

Hot new Vinho Verde region find! To be precise, this is actually labelled a Vinho Regional from the Minho; a wine can only be labelled Vinho Verde if it is 100% Alvarinho from the sub-zone of Melgaço, which this is not. Quinta do Regueiro makes great stuff though. Flavors of ripe yellow fruits show hints of ripe apple and red bananas - those delicious, sweet/tangy smaller bananas, not the regular ones we all grew up with.

Produced from Baga and Touriga Nacional grapes from different vineyards in Beiras, Luis Pato's entry-level red is loaded with character and offers terrific value as well as some really distinctive, specific flavors.

(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 »

1985 Graham's Vintage Port

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. Yes, it is made in a sweeter style than the other ports, but it is a fabulous wine because of a dazzling level of black-cherry fruit, an enormous structure, and staggering depth, dimension, and length. (RP)" (1/1989) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark color, with intense aromas of blackberry, licorice and hints of flowers. Full-bodied, lightly sweet, with superrefined tannins. Long and caressing. Very youthful. Will improve for a long time. This is really excellent. Always has been. Just starting to come around. (JS, ...Read More »

1983 Fonseca Vintage Port

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. If Fonseca lacks the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dow or Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, it excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavors. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wines, but I always find myself upgrading my o ...Read More »
