Bonavita White $10.00
A lovely eclectic surprise. These grapes you've never heard of creates an exotic and tropical nose of apricots and peaches, with wonderful lemony undertones. Very light and fresh melon on the palate. A lively and well-balanced wine that goes with about anything light, especially seafood. Arinto , Fernão Pires , Moscatel , Rabo de Ovelha.
Bonavita Red $10.00
Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.
Anjos Vinho Verde $11.00
The perfect summer-time wine, light and slightly bubbly, but crisp and dry. Tastes almost like a margarita with wonderful green apples and a crisp lemon-lime acidity. The only problem? The bottle disappears too quickly, I suggest getting a few of these little pretties.
Lab Rose $12.00
What do we know about Portuguese wine? Not enough apparently! This rose is an excuse to better acquaint yourself with this country. Very feminine aromas of strawberry and pink mulberry. Bubblegum on the palate with the slightest bit of tannin to give this rose structure. Can we say patio pounder??!?
Armas de Guerra Mencia $13.00
An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.
Quinta Infantado Ruby $17.00
Still crafted by hand in the valleys of Portugal, this Ruby is elegant and rich with an excellent balance of acid, soft fruit and minimal tannins. While it's classified medium-dry, it is absolutely a sweet wine and this unfiltered, estate-bottled ruby brings a lot to your table. It's priced like a introductory port and while it is, it's got the power and layers of complexity to please even a port snob.
Rich with a vibrant color, great depth, body and fruit, with a long finish. Like all La Rosa Ports, not too sweet. It should be consumed within 2 to 3 years of bottling. This one has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting and can be served as an aperitif or after dinner. Try it chilled, on the rocks or with a mixer.
Ferreira Tawny Porto $18.50
Ferreira Ruby has an intense and well defined ruby hue, full- bodied and rich, it has a fine balance between its sweetness and its tannin structure, giving it unique characteristics and a fine and attractive long finish.
A very nice change from syrupy tawnies, this LBV has an elegance with a cleaner and drier profile. Gorgeous candied cherry and plum with a little licorice and fig flavors.
Blandys 10yr Malmsey Madeira $28.00
All Malmsey from the tiny island of Madeira. This is the missing piece to our dessert menu and a wonderful example of Madeira. Caramel and rich chocolate nose, a coating sweet palate and just the right amount of acidity to wash it away. Dont forget to ask about this wine and our Revolution.
Poco do Lobo $32.00
Always on the hunt for the extraordinarily geeky, we are pleased to present Poco do Lobo! The dominant grape is one native to Portugal, called Baga. This wine is vinified and spends its whole life in concrete until it's unleashed in the world upon special order. This wine is old enough to drink! A 1996 still showing gorgeous cherry licorice and surprising tannin!
The classic style with Malmsey/Malvasia with surprising balance between acidity and sweetness. Lovely flavors of coffee, nuts, and dried fruit with soft notes of caramel.
A rare family, estate Sercia Madeira bringing a salty, old wood, Amontillado style aromatics with slight rich sweetness creating a drinkable aperitif style with excellent balance. A Madeira to drink with the meal as well as after. A disappearing style we are proud to support!
