This was excellent! I would love to find more - unfortunately, only bought 2...

  • 2005 Quinta da Prelada Douro Poyares - Portugal, Douro (4/30/2009)
    nose: a little cheesy, very herbal, barnyard comes and goes.
    palate: young and exuberant. med-high acidity, flavors of garden herbs and dark fruits. chocolatey, med tannin. Medium finish, the fruit doesn't last as long as QC, for instance (ala JR's text), but what wine does? Very nice, intense structure.
    87-88 at pop and pour with certain room to improve.

    Over the course of the night this became more delicious. 90+, for sure. If I had paid more attention, I could write more about it. As it is, I just wish I had more than one remaining bottle...

    after a few hours: stellar effort. Practically unbelievable. Wish I had bought much more at the Garagiste price. (91 pts.)

Don't you wish there were more people on this board?
:)

I don't know much about the Duoro table wines, but this makes me want to explore more. Do you have any recs? I don't see a whole lot up here in Seattle.

Yeah, more people on here would sure be nice!

Some of the Douro red wines I've enjoyed are the Quinto do Crasto Reserva and Chryseia by Prats and Symington.

Cheers!

I thought this was kind of boring on the palate with a muted nose. My first bottle was refunded due to TCA. Okay for $16 but Quilceda Creek...hardly. That said, this is more of a Garagiste wine than a new world oak bomb, for sure.\ ;)
