Tasting Notes

Infantado’s 10-year Tawny is an exceptional wine with a deep amber color, well-delineated flavors, and incredible length. Following the bold notes of melted toffee and singed Meyer lemon, it finishes with flavors of fresh-roasted coffee poured over caramels. Made in the house's classic "meio-seco" style, this is not overly sweet; its rich profile is amplified by a round, silky texture. Serve after dinner (or in the mid-afternoon) with delicate pastries or lightly aged soft cheeses.

Staff Pick Notes

Infantado's range of Ports are quite unique. In particular, I find their 10 year Tawny to be exceptional. João Roseira, vineyard manager/winemaker, and his wife Catherine Roseira produce and promote single estate Ports that maintain structure and balance. They eloquently communicate depth, the concentration found in the old vines of the steeply-terraced Douro. 100% Trincadeira, a fine example of the house’s signature “meio-seco” or off-dry style, it oozes toffee and charred citrus, and is under constant evolution in one’s glass. Roseira’s ports are always a little more dry than one would suppose, so be warned. But this is why they are so distinct. I love to sip this as an old lady would: in the middle of the afternoon, after tea, while sitting in a comfy chair, and contemplate the virtues of artisanal wines over mass-produced.

This practice effectively prevented small private producers from exporting their wines, since the cost of running an...

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Portugal

The Dão and the Douro are the most important regions as far as red Portuguese table wine is concerned. Douro wines tend to be a bit fuller and fleshier than their Dão counterparts, which are generally lighter and higher in acidity. Reds from both regions are dense, rustic, and well-balanced. They also show their terroir quite clearly, and represent a great alternative to the modern fruit-driven...
