Quinta do Vale Meao Douro 2013

97 Wine Enthusiast
95 Wine Advocate
(3/2016) "The 2013 Tinto (the Estate, flagship red here) is a blend of 58% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, 5% Tinta Barroca and 2% Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in 225-liter Allier barriques (80% new and 20% second use). It comes in at 14% alcohol. Adding a layer of concentration and more power to the Meandro, its sibling reviewed this issue, this has a wonderfully elegant feel, while adding some surprising pop and power to the gripping and lingering finish. Let's not forget the part where it provides wonderful intensity of flavor on the finish. It's just delicious this year, without ever being candied, sweet or obvious. Subtle at times, yet intense and persistent, this perfectly balanced beauty should hold well. It has some things to prove in the cellar, but it should develop well. As time goes on, I'm expanding drinking windows, but let's remain a little on the conservative side. Sourced from vines averaging 45 years in age, there were 2,050 cases produced. Drink 2017-2035."

Warres Vintage Port 2016

#14 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2018!
98 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2018) "Gorgeous, with warm plum reduction and gently steeped raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors forming the core, all inlaid with warm ganache and smoldering tobacco accents. Very plush in feel, but has no lack of energy, as everything sails beautifully through the long finish. A late echo of anise completes the seduction. Best from 2035 through 2055. 3,000 cases made."

(2/28/2014) "An elegant style, full of well-spiced, juicy flavors of raspberry, boysenberry and blueberry that extend with lively acidity and well-integrated tannins. Unctuous and succulent on the finish, which oozes with molten chocolate. Best after 2025. 1,250 cases made."

Fonseca 10yr Old Tawny Port NV

90 Wine Spectator
(6/30/2018) "Shows a slightly darker and richer profile than most of its peers, with fig, plum cake, dark licorice and toasted black sesame notes rolling through. Slightly gutsy, offering a brambly edged finish. A muscular tawny. Drink now."

Fonseca "Guimaraens" Vintage Port 2013

(12/30/2015) "The 2013 Guimaraens Vintage Port is a blend from three Quintas (Panascal, Cruzeiro and Santo Antonio). It comes in at 101 grams per liter of residual sugar. Bottled at the end of June 2015, this 2013 was a bit too sedate and understated after the initial aeration, but it was impressive in its ability to pull itself together, ultimately fleshing out, putting on weight and seeming far lusher and richer. It has lovely fruit and an intensely flavorful finish together with fine structure. It became surprisingly intense on the finish as it held, too, a pattern that was repeated the next day. That said, it is probably not quite as concentrated as it sometimes appeared on first taste. It may drink rather well on the younger side, but I'm always going to recommend holding them a bit to allow them to settle down, and even more importantly, acquire some complexity. For better results, come back in ten years or so."

Roquette & Cazes Douro 2013

91 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "The 2013 Tinto, the regular Estate red, is a blend of 60% Touriga Nacional, 15% Touriga Franca and 25% Tinta Roriz, aged for 20 months in French oak (70% new). It comes in at 14.5% alcohol. On opening, this was way too creamy, showing too much vanilla. I was surprised at how well it came around. As it sat in the glass, it became a little earthier, more serious, more focused and a bit more powerful, gradually absorbing much of the wood along the way. Its concentration is average, but it matches the structure perfectly. It came into fine balance, the juicy finish filled with fruit and flavor. It is fair to say that every minute it was open, it became more impressive, sexier and purer. It should be a very nice value on the street. The only question I have about this is how it will develop with cellaring. It is rather impressive now and should continue to be so over the next decade or so. Whether it will truly reward long aging is another question, but it won't fall off the table. We'll see where we are when we get there."

Quinta do Noval Unfiltered Single Vineyard Late Bottled Vintage Port 2012

91 Wine Advocate
(8/31/2017) "The 2012 Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port is another fine Noval LBV, traditionally styled and bottled in June 2017 with a long cork. Noval is one of the region's finest and most consistent producers of traditional LBVs, wines that become more expressive and can develop with age. This is a little on the lighter side-that's the vintage, perhaps-but still respectably concentrated. It has fine, expressive fruit and the elegant styling for which Noval is known. This should drink well on release and hold well for a couple of decades (yes, traditional LBVs age well and develop). It will be released sometime in late 2017."

(11/2016) " (Best Buy) This offers more immediate pleasures than the vintage Dow's declared in 2011-it comes across as an idealized LBV rather than a baby Vintage. Formidable in its black density and red spice, fragrant with persimmon-like scents and tannins that have the grit of stone-ground chocolate, this is compellingly drinkable and delicious. Stock up for the holidays."
