Prunus

Private Selection Tinto Red Blend 2018

Probably my favorite Portugese red to date. Luscious dark fruit and leather on the nose and palate. Smooth, yet rich in texture and had nice structure and balance. Such a great value! 80% Jaen, 10% Tinto Roriz, 5% Alfrochiero, 5% others. 1/26/23. — 10 months ago

Quinta de Lemos

Touriga Nacional

2011 vintage. 100% Touriga Nacional from 12 years old vines. Aged in French barriques for 18 months. Dark red with only a little evolution. Holding back in the nose with timid blackberries violet impressions. Powerful wine with a black fruit a bit monolithic, packed with ripe tannin, while remaining very fresh. Long spicy finish. Might deserve a higher score with more bottle age. — 18 days ago

Quinta do Poço do Lobo Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

January 2023. A Karen MacNeil “wine you should try” from 2022. Enjoyed w/ KK & C. Stewed red fruit, baking spice, leather. So good! Still vibrant at almost 30 years old. — 2 days ago

Frei João Bairrada Baga Blend 1985

In beautiful shape, better than I remember the last bottle being. Dried red and black fruits, dry dusty tannins, forest floor, dried porcini mushroom and old leather umami nodes, cedar, dried herbs. Did I mention it’s dry? But it’s a beautiful wine, the flavor profile exudes sun baked warmth but the alcohol clocks in at less than 12% so it doesn’t fatigue the palate — 25 days ago
