Thomas Haag Schloss Lieser Riesling 2016

Aromas of tea leaves, something sweet and candy, honey with a lime slice in the background.

Crunchy, light, fresh, intense, crystalline. It blows my palate. Summer fruit with half sweetness, botanics like gin and cantaloupe.


Vidigueira Grande Escolha 2014

9 years ago - time moves fast - I discovered this wine and it was always part of my favorites. Rediscover it again was one my objectives during a short stay in Portugal.

Made with a blend of Antão Vaz and Perrum.

Mineral character, some ripe fruit and fruit pulp.

In the mouth I can feel dried pineapple, some apricot, hints of pear and lemon. Despite it is slightly dry, it is tense and alive and it kicks it in a so lovely manner. Still a favorite, still affordable still so high value for the price.

Some stone fruit, cantaloupe, pear, dried herbs in the aromas.

Round and rounder with jelly, gooseberry, cantaloupe, pear, explodes in the mouth, moisturizes the throat. How beautiful, what extraordinary strength and vigor.

Nebbiolo Valmaggiore 2014

Made from Nebbiolo that struck me. Is it a table wine or is it an LBV Port?

Oak cask, anise, black fruit and smoke in the aromas.

Slightly dry, opaque, smoked, plum and blackberry fruits, pinch of pepper and chocolate powder. Perfect to eat with a fillet steak.


Pazo Senorans Albarino 2017

Lemon, quartz, peach in the aromas.

Roller coaster of flavor. Peach on the front with lemon to give freshness. It has an imposing spine, grows, refreshes and tones. Finish like a light lemonade. Ends long in full bloom.

Cistus Reserva 2013

Made from a blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.

Smoked wood, plum and raisins in the aromas.

Results bodied in the mouth, but with harmony and grace. Vanilla with plum upfront dragging with some bites of berries. It is highly enjoyable.


Ponte das Canas 2014

Made from a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Syrah. Some aniseed, toasted wood and vanilla blend in the aromas.

Spiky, majority of black fruit with the sweetness of vanilla combined with some chocolate hints and spice. It swells, dilates and lingers after it ends.

Alto Moncayo Veraton 2015

Made from Grenache, full and deep on aromas: vanilla blended with ripe fruit.

In my mouth cavity I sense plum, raspberry, vanilla, some high fruit content spread, raisins, smoked wood, sorted berries. It never ends. You can even fell the heat without the pepper. Finishes infinite.


Ladron 2016

Aromas are raw, wine must still fermenting and old barrel. The wine is Spanish made from a wine variety named Mencía, but like seems I am felling a Portuguese Dão.

It tastes like farmer's wine. Crude, organic, no treatment, no freaking hidden flavors. Soil, herbs, raw unprocessed red fruit. Soft, against the current and the establishment. Ends short.
