2011 Douro Barca Velha Casa Ferreirinha

2011 Douro Barca Velha Casa Ferreirinha

Terrific structure, depth of colour and flavour articulate an outstanding year. Great warp and weft of ripe fruit (blackberry, strawberry, plum, dried fig and jam) and signature savoury roast chestnut, smoky clove and leather notes, with hints of bergamot and white flowers. Unerring acidity and impeccably judged iron-filing tannins underpin and fan the flavours. Exceptionally long, retro-nasal finish. Prodigious. Drink 2021‑2045. Rated 98. - Sarah Ahmed, decanter.com March, 2021

2016 Douro Chryseia Prats & Symington

2016 Douro Chryseia Prats & Symington

Elegant, highly broachable, with lovely fluidity, freshness and purity of black plum and blackberry fruit. Ultra-fine tannins do nothing to impede the flow, showcasing salty, schistous minerality, fragrant orange blossom and violets to the long finish. Deceptive levity. Drink 2019‑2031. Rated 95. - Sarah Ahmed, decanter.com. Regularly $80.00 the bottle, on sale now at:

2018 Douro Vinha Grande Casa Ferreirinha

2018 Douro Vinha Grande Casa Ferreirinha

Produce of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca fruit vinified at Quinta do Seixo in Cima Corgo and Quinta da Leda in the Douro Superior: lovely deep midnight ruby in color with deep‑ pitched and complex old‑world aromas suggesting vinosity itself what with fermentive tarry dried berry and ripe plummy fruit, licorice, vanilla, cedar and tobacco; cool, ripe spicy fruit on entry; almost velvety in texture with ample round tannins delivering fine intense complex almost resinous flavors that resonate long and warm on the finish. In our humble estimation, this wine delivers what its name might reasonably imply — from great vines, uma grande bebida de vinho tinto (a great drink of red wine, that is).

2018 Douro Prazo de Roriz Quinta de Roriz Prats & Symington

2018 Douro Prazo de Roriz Quinta de Roriz Prats & Symington

While the art of creating Port wine was being perfected, Bordeaux — another region with a talent for satisfying the thirst of the English — was inventing vinification using a process of prolonged maceration, allowing for the gradual and gentle extraction of tannins. This gave rise to the balance and finesse of the great red wines of the Médoc. The attempt to apply Bordeaux winemaking methods to grapes which are traditionally destined for the production of vintage Port is the essence of this exciting Prats & Symington project. Prazo de Roriz is produce of a classic mingling of 35% Touriga Franca, 20% Touriga Nacional, 15% Tinta Roriz, 10% Tinta Barroca and the remaining 20% 'mixed black' varieties hand‑harvested from the vineyards of Quinta de Roriz and Quinta da Perdiz. Quinta de Roriz is situated in a natural amphitheatre facing north on the banks of the Douro. Its mineral‑rich, schistous soils give highly aromatic wine of red‑fruited, mineral‑driven character. Quinta da Perdiz lies on a steep gradient on the other side of the same mountain in the relatively closed‑in Rio Torto Valley and produces ripe, soft, velvety wines from this warmer climate. Altogether, Prazo de Roriz is an exceptional Douro Valley red wine: deep almost opaque purple/ruby in color with alluring saturated aromas redolent of mineral soils‑influenced ripe berries and dried cherries, cacao, baking spices, grape pomace and graphite; then, at once, cool and classy, fresh, intense and vibrant on the palate, its mineral edge on keen display with fine ripe stony, but pliant tannins carrying penetrating flavors that remain fresh, long and mouthwatering to the finish.

2019 Douro Casa Ferreirinha Esteva

2019 Douro Casa Ferreirinha Esteva

«Esteva» in Portuguese translates to «rock rose» in English, which some insiders suggest also informs the aroma of fine Douro wine. Casa Ferreirinha Esteva Douro is produce of a typical Douro mingling of Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, hand‑harvested and vinified at the winery of Quinta do Seixo. After soft destemming and crushing, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel vats with gentle maceration by means of pumping over at a temperature of 25°C preserving the grapey aromas. The wine spent the cool of winter at Quinta do Seixo in stainless steel and subject to low natural temperatures, which contributed to their natural clarification. Here and now, the wine is a lovely bright ruby in color with glints of a purple; grapey pomacey aromas implore one to dive on in, there's a hint of salinity as well and old‑fashioned № 2 pencil shavings insinuate the mineral rich soils in which the wine is grown; at once delightfully full and fruity and light on its feet with a fine edge of chalky tannins that keep things moving along crisp and fresh. And do take note of the delicious value!

2019 Douro Vale do Bomfim Dow

2019 Douro Vale do Bomfim Dow

From Douro Valley vineyards of the Symington family in northern Portugal, including the Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira, which have traditionally supplied the famed Porto House of Dow. Vale do Bomfim represents a new style of table wine from the Upper Douro Valley, where the region's wealth of grape varieties, mature vineyards and modern winemaking have been successfully combined. Produce of 30% Touriga Franca, 20% Touriga Nacional and the remainder a field blend of typical and local 'mixed black' varieties, hand‑selected and vinified at the Quinta do Sol, among the most modern winemaking facilities in Portugal. Deep dark ruby in color with plump ripe red and darker berry aromas along with suggestion of the lifted floral/resinous scent of the rock rose (known as Esteva in the Douro) underpinned by the schistous vineyard floor itself (the wine seems to freshen further with air); supple on entry, just this side of velvety in texture, medium to just medium‑full in body with a fine balancing edge of nerve and fruity acidity and the gentlest tannins lending structure; then, long on flavor and mouthwatering to the finish.

2019 Dão Branco Broadbent

2019 Dão Branco Broadbent

From the Quinta dos Carvalhais in Dão in north central Portugal. This is an inspired blend of not yet necessarily household words in white wine grape varieties Encruzado, Malvasia Fina, Bical and Gouveio. Shimmering platinum with glints of emerald in color; ultra-fresh aromas suggesting myriad citrus and stone and cool just-ripened melon (Ian noted white flower and peach); vivid and fresh on the palate with a delicious hint of salinity conjuring the qualities of a classic combination of opposites like melon and prosciutto, yet ample and substantial enough to pair well with cream sauces and rich white meats, too; then fresh and crisp and mouthwatering on the finish; definitely 2nd glass kind of stuff. This is in our estimation a quite pleasant and useful white wine at a very attractive price.

Miles 10 Year Old Rich Malmsey Madeira

Miles 10 Year Old Rich Malmsey Madeira

Limpid amber/mahogany in color with aromas an oblique suggestion of roasted fruit (singed raisined Malvasia berries, really; Andrea noted dried apricot and orange blossom, as well), old wood, old leather, caramel, the scent of time passing/the scent of a time gone by, oh dear, one could spend all the moments of the late evening just nosing this; silken on entry onto the tongue, then, demonstrating more impact and warmth and concentration of flavor; even the intense heat of an Atlantic summer (or Texas summer, for that matter) leaves this wine unperturbed. How best to enjoy such? Well … this is a contemplative wine, for sure. So, to quote Supertramp, even in the quietest moments, yes, especially in the quietest, most contemplative moments or, perhaps, following the evening meal, with a bit of Queijo Serra da Estrela and a spot of membrillo alongside Marcona almonds or walnuts. Saboroso!

Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Porto

Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Porto

In the Graham's cellars the depiction of bunches of grapes on the cask ends has been used to signify a wine of Vintage Porto quality. Amongst these, six bunches denote the darkest and most full-bodied of such wines. One of Graham’s original Porto blends, Six Grapes is a true expression of the Graham’s house style with great richness and complexity — Graham's themselves refer to it as «everyday Porto for the lover of full-on Vintage Porto». Midnight ruby red in color with very primary aromas of ripe plum, prune, cherry, grape pomace, dried fig, tea leaf, bergamot, anise, cracked pepper, whoo, we could go on; rich, voluptuous even, on the tongue, then shows its warming grip with structure from velvety tannins; invigorating, fortifying, flavorful to the finish. And, a steal at the price!

2015 Cockburn's Vintage Porto

2015 Cockburn's Vintage Porto

Blend dominated by Touriga Franca (41%) and Touriga Nacional (37%). Mainly picked eight days after the mid-September rain: initially deep, ripe and dense on the nose, opening up to reveal a scented berry fruit bouquet. Lovely plum and berry fruit on the palate supported by fine-grained, gravelly tannins and a long, structured finish. Combines depth and finesse in equal measure. Drink 2030‑2050. Rated 96. - Richard Mayson, decanter.com January, 2018.

2016 Dow's Vintage Porto

2016 Dow's Vintage Porto

The 2016 Dow’s Vintage Port is based around the Vinha dos Ecos vineyard behind Bomfim, populated predominantly by mature Touriga Franca vines that were cropped at just 0.68kg per vine. It has a quite astonishing bouquet with layer upon layer of intense black cherry and cassis fruit, touches of clove, leather and a hint of over-ripe Satsuma. This is a mercurial bouquet that keeps changing in the glass, revealing smoky/burning ember scents with time. The palate is quite magnificent – perfectly balanced with a killer thread of acidity slicing through such pure intense black fruit that there is no heaviness at all. There is a sense of thrust on the finish as it fans out with almost careless abandon, a Vintage Port so self-assured that you can only sit back in amazement. Simply one of the best Dow’s ever made. Drink 2030‑2086. Rated 98. - Neal Martin, vinous.com June, 2018. Regularly $112.50 the bottle, on sale now at:

2016 Graham's Vintage Porto

2016 Graham's Vintage Porto

This offers a distilled plum and boysenberry essence, with a racy feel, as spearmint and graphite notes drive through. As the finish kicks in, this turns toward the dark side, with ganache, charcoal and tar elements. Has the showy ripeness of the vintage but is backed by a decidedly dry feel on the finish, imparting a sense of precision despite the heft. Best from 2030 through 2055. 6,325 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. Rated 98. - James Molesworth, winespectator.com December 31, 2018

1994 Graham's Vintage Porto

1994 Graham's Vintage Porto

In a port tasting, tasting Graham's is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham's. Drink: 2002-2035. Rated 96. - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate Issue 107, October, 1996

Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Porto

Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Porto

This is a lovely, if seemingly youthful, 10 year tawny, translucent garnet at the core in color to just sunset brickish orange-red at the edges with complex aromas suggestive of crystallized red and blue fruits, rhubarb, walnut, almond, all underpinned with a most welcome hint of the spirit that captured the fermentation in the first place; the texture is a very satisfying rich and silky with long, long flavors that conjure caramel, nuts and crisp dried red fruits with vivid nerve of ultra-fine tannins and the spirit itself serving as foundation. A much to be savored tender sweet kiss of a bevy goodnight.
