CASA  SANTOS  LIMA  CONFIDENCIAL LISBOA  “RESERVE” RED BLEND’10  – Full of tannins at this stage, it shows power and density. It’s a blend of more than 10 varieties, giving complexity as well as structure. There is acidity as well, bringing together the rich texture and a solid, wood and dark fruit combination.”…32.99

EMILIO LUSTAU EAST INDIA SPANISH “SOLERA” SHERRY’NV   “This is a style that was popular in the 19th century with the British colonists in India. By the time the sherry had been shipped to India it was quite mellowed with a burnt sugar edge to the flavour. These days it is made from 2/3 Oloroso and 1/3 Pedro Ximénez aged for 9 years then put back into barrel. It is placed in the hottest part of the winery and water is sprayed daily onto the floor to produce the humidity. Unlike the wine made from 100% Palomino Fino, thiswine can be opened and held for several weeks. The sample was a deep, thick, coffee coloured wine. Rich raisin scents with just the faintest hint of beef tea. A clean style and not as viscous as I would have imagined. It has all the nutty, dried fruit characters of the Oloroso wine but mocha and caramel too. A rich, powerful wine and I can see why it was so popular.”…….46.99

TERRA D’ORO AMADOR ZINFANDEL” PORTNV – “Begins with aromas of dark berries, black currant, raisins, orange zest and chocolate. Tasting the Port shows a nice velvety smooth texture with sweet black berries, raspberry, and black currant flavors plus a bit of toffee and chocolate. The finish has a bit of heat and then the sweet flavors linger nicely.”….55.99
