  • Luis Pato Colheita Seleccionada 2011


    70% Baga, 30% Touriga Nacional Deep, leathery and subtly spicy with notes of white pepper and cardamom on the nose, this gains layers of complexity with air running the gamut from pressed flowers to vegemite, peppercorn to sweet pipe tobacco.

  • Luis Pato Quinta Do Moinho Red Blend 1999


    dusty, slightly spicy nose and a dense, earthy palate with a spicy, strong oak imprint. Pairs nicely with gamey meats now but if you are planning on saving this for 10 or more years, it is suggested to pair excellently with a good sheep cured cheese. Read More
