Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Product #28480 (In Stock)
Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV

An outstanding in real Madeira for sipping or use in rich sauces or soups.  The light tawny color and heady aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, dark caramel, and burnt orange peel come from barrel aging and exposure to high heat for 3+ months - the process that "Madeirizes" the wine and creates its distinctive tang.  Lightly sweet to balance the zingy acids.

Esporao Assobio Douro 2011 Product #28538 (In Stock)
Esporao Assobio Douro 2011 Esporao Assobio Douro 2011

You may have heard that 2011 was an outstanding year for Vintage Port - well, those same grapes made great dry wine, too!  This blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca was harvested ripe, fermented cool, and aged in a mixture of tank and oak barrel.  It's a big, muscular, wine that needs a decant and big food now or a few years in cellar to really shine.  Outstanding value, especially if you're looking for something interesting to lay down for a few years.

"Assobio is from a single vineyard in the Quinta dos Murças estate. A powerful, structured expression of Douro wine, it has black fruits, dark tannins, some subtle layers of wood aging and great concentration. Dark and richly fruity, it needs to mature before drinking."Wine Enthusiast 94 points

Quinta Dona Matilde Branco 2010 Product #27660 (In Stock)
Quinta Dona Matilde Branco 2010 Quinta Dona Matilde Branco 2010

From one of the oldest estates in Portugal's Douro valley and still family owned. Their white wine is made from the local grape varieties of Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio and Rabigato. Crystal clear in color, this is wonderfully aromatic with notes of citrus, passion fruit, melon and fresh rainwater with a touch of jasmine.  The flavors follow in this richly textured, but terrifically refreshing, white that leaves ample citrus acidity and saline mineral notes on the mouthwatering, fresh, finish.  Terrific wine.

Conceito Contraste Branco Douro 2011 Product #28093 (In Stock)
Conceito Contraste Branco Douro 2011 Conceito Contraste Branco Douro 2011

Fresh, bright, and great with asparagus!

"The 2011 Branco, the flagship estate white, is basically the same blend and process as the 2010 reviewed this issue, says winemaker Rita Marques. Not surprisingly, given the quality of this white lineup, this is super, too. If the ‘10 Contraste is sunny and exhilarating, this adds the solidity and power, while remaining fresh, pure and bright. It has oak, but it seems so fresh that I can taste the tank. It ends with a gripping finish. The ‘10 may brood a bit more, but this may well be the best wine here and I’ll be interested to see how it ages. For now, I’m chalking up some of the freshness to its obvious youth. It combines that youthful exuberance with fine depth and solidity. I’m still leaning up a little, but I don’t think this will disappoint. Drink now-2019."Wine Advocate 93 points

Conceito Contraste Tinto 2009 Product #28094 (In Stock)
Conceito Contraste Tinto 2009 Conceito Contraste Tinto 2009

"The 2009 Contraste red is a Douro blend, including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz and Sousao, aged 70% in 3rd year barriques of French oak. This is never terribly concentrated, but it is quite luscious this year. Despite the modest oak treatment, it still has a certain creamy nuance on opening. But you pay the price of admission here for the flavorful fruit. Softly textured, sexy, ripe and easily approachable, with moderate tannins, this goes down easy and just plain tastes great. Yet, it does have character, too; it just needs an hour of air to show it. With air, some herbal nuances pop up, it comes together well, becomes silkier and displays increasingly fine balance. I liked this more and more, despite a relatively straightforward beginning. Drink now-2019."Wine Advocate 89 points

Ramos Pinto Ruby Port Product #28028 (In Stock)
Ramos Pinto Ruby Port Ramos Pinto Ruby Port

A delicious and fun Ruby port made from younger vines of Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca and aged 3 years in big wooden wine vats called "balseiros". Fresh and fruit-filled with generous notes of crushed raspberry, blackberry, and sweet licorice and dark chocolate.  Very juicy and fresh, and perhaps too easy to drink by itself.  But, try it with Stilton, nuts, or chocolate cake - Yum!

Rozes Porto White Reserve NV Product #25066 (In Stock)
Rozes Porto White Reserve NV Rozes Porto White Reserve NV

First, yes - this is a full 750ml bottle!  It's also a fascinating take on white Port.  Because the white wine aged in wood for 8 years, this drinks like a fantastically vibrant, youthful, tawney Port.  Full of dried apricot and raisin fruit and lightly caramelized walnut and almond flavors, it's lightly sweet and super long on the palate.  Delicous!
