Vinho Verde Rosé Blend

This wine has a rich and beautiful cherry red color. Its nose is playful enough, all watermelon candy and apples and strawberries, but with an herbal tilt that seems very elusive. I think the aroma reminds me of some wines made from North American grapes, but that is not the case here. This wine comes from Portugal’s production area known as Vinho Verde. Yes, that translates to “green wine” but it actually means “young wine.” The palate brings a strong showing of cherry, strawberry and a sort of Jolly Rancher note. The acidity is wonderful, delightfully tingly and quite refreshing. An earthy tone of red fruit persists after the sip. — 3 days ago

Aged 10 Years Tawny Port Blend

This Port is very sweet, with potent notes of maple, chocolate, and maybe raisin. This is a rich dessert red, that is almost rust in color. This pairs really well with dark chocolate. — 6 days ago

Meandro Douro Red Blend 2020

Blend of 50% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz, 4% Tinta Barroca & 1% Alicante Bouschet, aged in used French oak for 14 months, aromas of fresh dark berry flavors with herb, spice and cedar notes. On the palate flavors of blueberry and plum with licorice, cedar, espresso and spicy herbs. Fine ripe tannins, medium finish ending with fruit, cedar, spice and herb character.

Casal Garcia

Vinho Verde White Blend

Floral notes with a sparkling electric touch on the lips and tongue. Almost like a Veuve Cliquot bubbly in wine form. Light mineral flavor. Very bright and almost sweet tart green apple. — 3 days ago

Aged 20 Years Tawny Port Blend

browner colour, smells of burnt caramel, apricots, amber honey - very syrup-y. not as sweet as the other port. tastes like raisins, maple syrup-esque. tastes similar to the maple syrup taffy/lollipops. not as fruity as the other port. after chocolate the flavours are softened and honestly not as sweet — 6 days ago

Warre's

Otima 10 Year Old Tawny Porto

Oak intermingles nicely w cherry sweetness. Red-orange color is perfect. Strong aromas delivered in richness. Thought I was a white wine person, but the balanced, sweet freshness of a port is becoming my new favorite indulgence — 3 days ago
