Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011 Product #29373 (In Stock)
Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011 Portada Winemakers Selection Tinto Douro 2011

Number 8 on Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys of 2014!   The grape blend here is a good example of why folks find Portuguese wine intimidating:  Tinta Roriz, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Caladoc, Castelão, Pinot Noir, and Touriga Nacional are in there somewhere!  The winemaking is pretty straight ahead, with fermentation in tank and just a little time in barrel and bottle before release.  But there’s a nice touch of complexity to the plump, juicy, aromas and flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, and tangy plum fruit and accents of crushed violets and lavender.  At just 12.5% abv, you can enjoy this solo with a chill or pair it everything from fried chicken to grilled tuna or burgers.

"A dark colored, dense wine that is rich and firmly structured. Aged in wood, it holds flavors of plum and berry fruits balanced with a fresh acidity. This is a wine for aging, its structure a powerful statement. Drink from 2014.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Portal Do Fidalgo Alvarinho 2015 Product #31049 (In Stock)
Portal Do Fidalgo Alvarinho 2015 Portal Do Fidalgo Alvarinho 2015

Technically a Vinho Verde, it's really a stunning Portuguese take on Spain's Albarino grape.  Explosive flavors of white peach, orange and apricot coat your palate and drive on through a dry peach and flower blossom finish.  Seriously refreshing and satisfying, this is a "do not miss" winner!

"The producer is based in the Monção and Melgaço region of northern Vinho Verde. It is crisp—so fresh and cut with apple and citrus acidity. Light and poised, it has just the lightest touch of wood from the short oak aging."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Reguengo De Melgaco Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2015 Product #31072 (In Stock)
Reguengo De Melgaco Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2015 Reguengo De Melgaco Vinho Verde Alvarinho 2015

BIG flavor and fun here, with explosive orange and tangerine citrus, tropical fruit and a touch of apricot tang.  Very long, very delicious.

"The 2015 Alvarinho is dry and comes in at 13% alcohol. This is nicely structured, but it is most impressive for its expressive fruit. Ripe and delicious, with a solid mid-palate and crispness on the edges, this is a beautifully crafted Alvarinho. It should hold for several years, but it is hard to resist now."Wine Advocate 90 points

Conceito Branco 2011 Product #29112 (In Stock)
Conceito Branco 2011 Conceito Branco 2011

Rita first came to international attention with the 2007 edition of this white, and Wine Advocate once again named this their top Douro white in 2011.  It’s a field blend of of Rabigato, Côdega de Larinho, Códega, Viosinho and Gouveio from an ancient, pre-phylloxera, vineyard in the cool Teja Valley, far above the Douro River.  Rita fermented and aged the just ripe fruit for 10 months in a blend of French and Caucasian oak, about 40% new.

This takes the bright, fresh, fruit flavors of the Contraste Branco and adds a layer of white Burgundy sophistication and complexity.  Aromas of apple, apricot, grilled pineapple, smoke, crushed chervil, and wet stones.  The flavors follow the nose and add creamy vanilla, toasted nut, and brown spice and find the crushed fresh herb coming forward.  An anise note emerges on the back and carries through to the long, broad, and super-fresh finish that just keeps pumping out juicy acids, bitter citrus pith, and salty mineral flavors for a minute or more. A stunner for now and years to come.

"More minerally and longer than the Contraste and a little more concentrated and with greater ageing potential. Citrus, grapefruit, mineral and really good length. Sophisticated with a line of freshness and drive."  JancisRobinson.com 17/20

"If the ‘11 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. It combines that youthful exuberance with fine depth and solidity. Drink now-2019."Wine Advocate 93 points

"This rich, wood-aged wine is balanced and stylish. It shows the great potential for white wine in the Douro, with its panoply of flavors ranging from creamed apple to white peach, with a hint of herb. It’s a fruity offering that will age for at least 3–4 years."Wine Enthusiast 90 points
