2011 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "David Guimaraens blends this wine from Fonseca vintage lots that do not make the final cut, along with wines initially designated for the LBV. He bottles the wine unfined and unfiltered, intending it to be decanted. His 2011 is remarkable: It has the succulent fruit depths of the Fonseca style, and the intensity of a Vintage-level wine. You could quibble and say the tannins are not Vintage quality, with some rhubarb-like astringency, or the wine is too big and powerful for an LBV. But you're not liekly to find many LBV's with this full-on ripeness, extra ...Read More »

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 Soalheiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde

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 »

2015 Adega Cooperativo Regional de Monçao "Muralhas de Monçao" Vinho Verde

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.

2014 Quinta Vale do Meao "Meandro" Douro

We loved the 2013 vintage of "Meandro," a great value Douro blend hailing from the higher elevation, more granitic section of the Douro valley. In the 2014 we see a slightly richer wine, though it has lots of the freshness, minerality and violet floral traits, all in terrific balance. This continues to be one of our favorite Douro reds at the moment.

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.

Medium-grained tannins emerge on the snappy finish, showing ferrous accents. Drink now through 2020.

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.

1977 Graham's 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.

2014 Quinta do Romeu "Moinho do Gato" Douro

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 »

Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

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.

Taylor 10 Year Old Tawny Port

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.

2013 Quinta do Crasto "Old Vines" Reserva Douro

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 »

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 »

Sandeman 40 Year Old Tawny Port

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark raisin and dried apricot flavors manifest on this immensely dark, old goldhued wine. Enormous concentration, as with the initially, almost painful acidity that comes through the spirit. This is an old wine, no question, but not too old, one to be savored in sips with all the flavors working at high intensity. (RV)" (12/2008) 92 points Wine Spectator: "A rich and smoky style, with plenty of roasted, nutty notes to the dried plum and cherry tart flavors. The powerfully spicy finish shows tangerine and dried apricot accents. (KM)" (9/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Pale tawny with a slighty yellow cast but s ...Read More »

2013 Quinta Vale do Meão Douro

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This wine is dominated by Touriga Nacional, which offers a backbone of dark tannins that gives it a firm structure and will allow it to age for many years. Produced in open stone lagares, it has richness and impressive opulence in black fruit tones that are cut by juicy acidity. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (4/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Tinto (the Estate, flagship red here) is a blend of 58% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, 5% Tinta Barroca and 2% Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in 225-liter Allier barriques (80% new and 20% second use). It comes in ...Read More »

Fonseca "Bin 27" Port

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 »

1977 Taylor Vintage Port

97 points Wine Spectator: "Good ruby color still. The nose is fresh, with lots of crushed berry and plum, with a hint of piecrust. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a caressing texture. This delivers loads of complex fruit and spiciness. Medium-sweet. A beauty. Will improve for decades, but why wait? (Web-2008)" 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that ke ...Read More »
