Aphros 2020 Phaunus Palhete (Loureiro & Vinhao blend)

Palhete is the local name for a wine that is made in a farmer's style, by blending red and white grapes to create a low-alcohol wine to drink during the day. As founder Vasco Croft explains, there was no soda or beer back in medieval times, and water was not reliable, so the Palhete wines provided the only trustworthy hydration at the time. The wine is very light in body, but with plenty of savory, crushed red berry character in the mid-palate. Drink with a light chill. -EL

Quinta da Mariposa 2018 Dao Vinho Tinto

Lúcia Freitas manages Quinta da Mariposa, located in Carregal do Sal in the Dao región of Portgal. The Dao is home to Portugal’s oldest varieties, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. Mariposa’s Tinto is a blend of both of these varieties and a little bit of Jaen (or, Mencia). It shows notes of wild strawberry, bramble, some brown spice and fresh herbs. JDC

Quinta do Javali 2019 Douro 'Clos Fonte do Santo Cherry Tree Vineyard'

A field blend of about 20 different varieties, all indigenous to the Douro. The 'Cherry Tree' sees a short maceration, and combined with the assumed inclusion of some white grapes in the vineyard, the wine is light and ehtereal. A really lovely wine, and a contrast to otherwise darker expressions from the region.

Sidónio de Sousa 2016 Bairrada Reserva

Sidónio de Sousa's Reserva Tinto is a savory, medium to full-bodied expression of Baga, from clay-limestone soils in the Ancas-Bairrada. Pressing and fermentation happens in traditional small cement lagars, with aging for a year in large 4000L barrels, and a further two years in bottle before release. Pepper, black currant, oregano, and fresh earth abound. For a wine under $20, this traditional Baga over-delivers, providing the leather and cedar notes of a fine Bordeaux mixed with the finesse of Nebbiolo. Perhaps an old fashioned wine in style, this is no fault! A great value.  -EL
