Review: 2018 Quinta de Roriz Post Scriptum Douro DOC

We’ve checked out Prats + Symington’s Post Scriptum on several occasions; as a refresher, this ever-changing red blend is a dry table wine made from the same grapes and hailing from the same region as Port. For 2018, the grape makeup is 58% Touriga Nacional, 39% Touriga Franca, and 3% Tinta Roriz. The 2018 Post…

Review: Aberfeldy 12, 16, and 21 Years Old

Aberfeldy is best known for its significant contributions to Dewar’s Scotch blends (Dewar’s being the distillery’s corporate owner), but it’s also the home to its own line of single malts, with bottlings reaching as old as 40 years of age.

Review: 2017 Clos Mogador Priorat Gratallops

Spain’s Priorat region has a reputation for being one of the inkiest, deepest, most intense wines on the planet. What a surprise then to tuck into this Gratallops-grown red (a blend of 46% garnacha, 29% cariñena, 15% syrah, and 10% cabernet sauvignon) and find such a fruity, lively delicacy. The wine is bursting up front…

Review: 2019 Mateus Dry Rose

Mateus? Mateus. The wine your parents dranks when Lancer’s, Blue Nun, and Black Tower weren’t available is making a push back into the zeitgeist, and — surprise — it’s better than you might think. The brand lays claim as being the first Portuguese rose ever created, and while the original Mateus was slightly sparkling and…
