Reserva Tinto Collares Ramisco 1969

Deep, exuberant nose with scents of cherry, damp earth and hints of wood and balsamic and medicinal notes. Light-bodied, red fruit and minerals. Savory, complex, lively tannins and incredible freshness for a 53 year old wine (1969 vintage). Vibrant acidity and elegant length. — 8 months ago

Dominó Colar Tinto Red Blend 2018

From my new hot spot. Light red but not Ramisco. Has real snap & freshness. Let it settle into itself, & like a nervous nelly the cranberry puckering acidity becomes more rounded. — 3 years ago

Reserva Colares Vinho Tinto 1997

There must be a story here, as this 100% Ramisco has a Colheita designation on its label, which I thought could only be used for Port. For a 23 yro wine it still flutters with intensity, but has a faded Ribena palate, beautiful red brick color, & crushed currants/oil paint on the nose. It also avoids the metallic flavor my previous bottle had. For under 40$ it’s a treat to taste such a graceful aged wine. — 2 years ago

Collares Genuino Premiado 2011

A unicorn wine presents a unicorn experience. First, all hail the Ramisco varietal, explained to me as singular to this area of Portugal and soon to be extinct given the level of building development there. From the label: “the Colares wine región was defined in 1908. The vineyards are planted in the dunes between the hills of sintra and the Atlantic Ocean “. The nose alone is worth the price of admission: vibrates with intensity, red fruits, cut flowers. And this was after drinking an intensely vibrant Syrah by Herve Souhaut!
Taste is somewhere between a medium bodied Rioja and a deep Mercia from Ribera Sacra, minus any traces of barrel aging. Utterly seductive mouthfeel, not unctuous or cloying, almost chewy. An intense pitch of acidity higher up on the register ( hence the Ribera analogy). 38$ for a 500ml bottle. A reminder why sharing wines like these with your homeboys is the only way to live.

A dry mouth feel but plush and deep. I need more and so I bought some.

Incredible finish. Tastes like a Douro, Touriga, but has a very delicate and lingering finish. Love love! — 7 months ago

Colares Chitas Reserva Velho Ramisco 2009

Unique wine from pre-phylloxera vines grown in the sand less than a mile from the Atlantic. Nose is grape juice concentrate and beef jerky, teriyaki, some smoke, berries and a clay/mineral earthiness. A remarkable freshness too. Bright red fruit on the palate. Ripe, without compromised acidity. Silky texture and fine tannins. Reminds me of Cote Rotie but with a boost in acid and saltiness. Drinking beautifully now though another 10-15 years in the bottle probably wouldn’t hurt! — 2 years ago
