Product Description

Boeira Douro Red is made from 35% Touriga Nacional, 35% Tinta Roriz and 30% Touriga Franca.

Smooth attack with good structure and excellent mouth feel. Fresh, with well integrated tannins bringing elegance and a gastronomic profile to the wine. Very well balanced.

Boeira Douro DOC Red from the Douro Valley is the result of a careful blend of different varieties from the Douro. After fermentation the wine was left in contact with its lees until bottling in order to develop complexity and richness.

Pair with pork roast stuffed with prunes and apricots, grilled meats, marinated leg of lamb, chicken curry, pasta with beef or pork ragout, vegetable timbale with roasted tomatoes and grilled almonds. A very “friendly” food wine.

Winery: Boeira

Quinta da Boeira was built by an emigrant named Manuel da Rocha Romariz, who returned from Brazil in the early 19th century. Knowing the Brazilian market, he registered as an exporter of Port Wine in 1850, using two trade names for the labels: ROMARIZ and BOEIRA.
These brands quickly won the consideration and confidence of consumers and distributors due to their quality, expanding to several markets, among which Portuguese, English, French and Brazilian stood out, among others.
In 1966, the property was acquired by an English family, the warehouses by a textile company and the wines were sold to a Port Wine exporting company.

In 1999 the property was put up for sale with the main interest of a contractor who intended to build luxury homes in a closed condominium.

Father João de Freitas Ferreira, director of a school in Vila Nova de Gaia, warned of the situation of the eminent possibility that the 3 hectares of the property could be transformed into massive construction, with the consequent destruction of its centennial grove.
Concerned and sensitized to the cause, Father João de Freitas Ferreira, integrating a group of ten friends, decided to acquire the property, thus protecting the centenary trees and the palace of the early 19th century.
For the acquisition of the property, a financial study was carried out with the division of investments into five phases:


FIRST PHASE
The transformation of stables and greenhouses into a multi-purpose hall with auditorium and the restoration of all paths in the gardens represented the initial phase of the project which, from the beginning, intended to transform Quinta da Boeira into a visiting room in the north of the country and, more specifically , in Vila Nova de Gaia.


SECOND PHASE
The recovery of the mansion, which was in an advanced state of deterioration, began, transforming it into offices and a luxury restaurant with a capacity for about 80 people seated.


THIRD PHASE
In order to attract tourists to the high elevation of the city of Vila Nova de Gaia, the largest bottle in the world was built, measuring 32 meters in length and 10 in diameter, thus allowing the creation of a tasting room and exhibition room to promote Portuguese wines, culture and gastronomy. It was also possible to adapt the room for the transmission of films in 3D, letting tourists know the different wine regions of Portugal.


FOURTH PHASE
With the objective of financially consolidating the entire project, Quinta da Boeira registered at the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e do Porto (IVDP) in 2017, thus returning to the genesis of Quinta da Boeira in 1850, as an exporter of Vinhos do Porto, under the BOEIRA brand.


FIFTH PHASE
The project, in its fifth and final phase, concluded with the construction of a 5-star hotel, with 119 rooms and 5 suites, whose construction was based on the green system. The most up-to-date environmental techniques were implemented, such as the use of groundwater to supply sanitary tanks and automatic irrigation of about 3 hectares of the property, with photovoltaic and solar energy also being used, which allowed for remarkable savings and drastic reduction in carbon emissions, transforming it into an ECO hotel.
The most recent challenge was the acquisition of the C. da Silva family home, a name also linked to the export of Port Wines, designed in the 19th century by the architect Teixeira Lopes. Quinta da Boeira is a reference in wines of superior quality, namely in Port Wine, duly certified by the Institute of Douro and Port Wines and proudly marked with the knight seal on the neck, according to the guidelines that the Observatório do Port wine advocates for the defense of the Porto Denomination of Origin.
Each Quinta da Boeira wine is a unique experience, in which Wine and Art are intimately linked, having their maximum exponent in unique bottles and which are distinguished by their shape and aesthetics, such as Diamond or Decanter.

Pleasure Party Pink Moscato NV

This party is sexy, fun and all about the Ladies.

This Moscato is fresh and delectable. The color is shiny and bright like light pink lip gloss. The aromas are filled with floral and citrus scents with lots of orange. A lovely balance of sweet sugar and tangy acidity. The flavors meld into a blend of sticky honey with cinnamon baked apples. Hints of vanilla wafers and creamy orange sherbet. The sweetness is dense and layered, but still shows light and bright.
Overall, the wines taste profiles would tend to sweet oranges, limes and baked apples.

Great for Ladies night, weekend brunch, summer picnics, most dessert courses or on its own simply as an aperitif.

Silver Oak Timeless Soda Canyon Ranch Red 2018

When the founding fathers of the Napa Valley carved out new sub-AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) in the 1980s, Soda Canyon Ranch was not yet on anyone’s map. The vineyard is neighbored to the northwest and west by the winegrowing districts of Stags Leap District and Oak Knoll District, respectively, which were among the early pioneers of California Cabernet Sauvignon to attain global fame. To the northeast and southeast—and further off the beaten path—were Atlas Peak and Coombsville, thought to be the next frontiers for the emerging wine-producing region.

With richness and depth of flavor, the 2018 Timeless Napa Valley is the embodiment of patience and attention to detail. Decades of experience at Soda Canyon Ranch allow winemaker Nate Weis and team to highlight the individual merits of each block. Combining the strongest lots from each resulted in a refined and harmonious bottling.

In 2018, the diurnal shift at Soda Canyon Ranch produced a darker, lusher fruit profile of Cabernet Sauvignon. Simultaneously, the overnight recovery periods resulted in expressive and refined Merlot, giving the wine a pleasant profile of bright, red fruit. With an extended harvest window, the signature, plush density and structure of Petit Verdot is also prevalent in the final blend. Cabernet Franc thrived in 2018 with its predilection for the cooler soils and the climate of blocks 5, 6, 16, 20 and 21—areas we call the Transition Zone and Hardpan Alley. The variety’s floral and tobacco-like aromatics are accentuated, and its more aggressive nature for back-end tannins tamed.

Once blended, the 2018 vintage rested in French oak barrels for 16 months, developing flavors of vanilla and baking spice. Velvety tannins dance across the palate of bright and lingering cassis. With a smooth finish, this is a comforting wine of elegance and depth—a sophisticated expression of the sedate summer.

Review:

This is a little old-school and shows lots of dark berry, chocolate and dried fruit. It’s full, dense and layered with fleshly sensibility. Velvety texture.

Red Phoenix Red Blend 2018

Red Phoenix Red Blend is made from 57% Zinfandel; 14% Petit Verdot; 12% Petite Sirah; 7% Syrah; 5% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

With European origins dating back centuries ago, blended red wine is once again having its day in the sun. Red Phoenix Red Wine Blend represents the essence of this well-deserved resurgence. Unbound by a single varietal or appellation, and given more flexibility with vintages, winemaker Joseph Smith skillfully showcases six distinct varietals in this luscious and layered wine. Unlike traditional red blends, Red Phoenix is both barrel aged and barrel fermented, adding structure, balance, and a new dimension to a wine that is rooted in tradition and soars on the palate.

APPELLATION

75% of the fruit is coming from Lodi AVA, while the remaining 25% are Napa Valley AVA's fruits. 

Coastal aromas of fresh fruit and lush florals coupled with a deep ruby color intrigue the senses. Bright, bold flavors of cherry and blackberry ascend on the palate while showcasing subtle, smooth tannins. The wine crescendos with anise, chocolate and toasted oak, offering depth and complexity, as velvety flavors continue to linger and evolve throughout the long, rich finish.


Avennia Valery Red Blend 2018

Avennia Valery Red Blend is made from 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc

Valery is named for the patron saint of wine in the St. Emilion region that inspired it.
We started with old vine Merlot from a stony block in the heart of the Yakima Valley and added complex, aromatic Cabernet Franc from the Horse Heaven Hills. The result is a balanced, complex wine with the elegance and ethereal perfume that this blend of two of Washington’s best varietals are known for.

The nose on this wine is very perfumed, almost exotic with notes of fresh violets, red plum, winter mint, fresh herbs and crushed limestone qualities. The palate is poised and balanced, with red fruits and mocha powder encapsulated in limestone. The finish lingers delicately, with the Cabernet Franc asserting a light tobacco and herb note, giving depth. A compelling wine that will continue to unwind for 7-10 years in the cellar.


Review:

The Merlot-dominated 2018 Valery (there's 11% Cabernet Franc) comes from two great vineyards, Boushey and Champoux, and spent 20 months in 28% new French oak. Deep ruby/plum-hued, with a great nose of black cherries, plums, dried herbs, and violets, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a round, expansive texture, soft tannins, and a great finish. This ripe, plump, sexy Merlot has loads of character and will keep for a decade. It has a certain Pomerol-like elegance, and I’m a fan.

Crown Point Relevant Red 2018

Crown Point Relevant Red is made from 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot.

The 2018 Crown Point Relevant is the introductory wine to Crown Point Vineyards. All estate grown, it showcases incredible freshness and fruit character from their young vines. A large part of the blend is given to Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings spiced tones of cassis, violets, and bay leaves. Cabernet Franc brings a delicate and soft character to this wine and is completed with a touch of Petit Verdot that brings tension and density.  The wine was aged in 50% new French oak and 50% used French oak for one year.  

 Review:

The 2018 Relevant is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot from younger vines and blocks on the property, and it is still aging in barrel. Deep ruby, if offers classic cassis, cedar, graphite and crushed boysenberry aromas with hints of Chinese Five Spice and licorice. The palate is medium to full-bodied with concentrated but fresh fruit character, a finely pixelated frame and seamless freshness, finishing long and super classy.
