    Snoothrank:

    Imported by: Palm Bay Imports Fl40% Castelao, 32% Touriga Nacional, 28% Touriga Franca Pencil shavings and dried green herbs pop on the nose followed by astringent red fruits and rusty aromas. On entry this is almost sweet for a second, rich with ripe fruit but the vibrant acidity quickly washes that away and offers a great contrast to the ripe... Read More

  • Fonseca Bin 27 Porto 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Im writing this from memory, not a recent tasting...so this should be updated. I remember really liking this one thought. Amazing for its price. Sweet, lighter than most ports, fruity and velvety, Matt wasn't particularly fond of it, but hes not much of a port guy. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of Castelão (74%), Trincadeira (14%), Aragonez (12%) A little smoky, earthy and vaguely mushroomy under briary almost black currant aromas with a little black spice on top. Lightweight on the palate but not without some tannin making for a lovely, easy drinking traditional table wine. Theres some nice raspberry fruit, a little spice, a... Read More

  • José Maria da Fonseca Setúbal Albis 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of Touriga Nacional (59%) and Syrah (41%) Oaky on the nose and rather toasty with very earthy, clay like soil tones, hints of tobacco and a sweet almond top note. Rich and round on entry and a bit dense on the palate, this shows some sweetness behind the flavors of blackberries, dried thyme and chocolate. There are some dry tannins on t... Read More

  • Periquita Reserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of Castelão (38%), Touriga Nacional (34%), Touriga Francesa (28%) Smells a bit like Syrah, peppery, inky a bit olivy, and filled with briary blue and black fruit, spice notes and a late hint of vanilla. Pretty rich on entry with an attractive stemmy accent to the rich core of blueberry and raspberry fruit. Medium light body with supple i... Read More

  • Periquita Reserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This wine contains less than 40% Castelão (Periquita) so is hardly Periquita per se. However, the inclusion of Touriga Nacional is definitely a plus; the nose has a hint of sour cherry - even cranberry - with wet earth. The entry is tart, with more cranberry and some soft tannin. The wine finishes short to medium with sweet and sour notes lin... Read More
