      Wine Review: Weise and Krohn Valtorto 2011 Red Blend Douro

      … I’m fascinated by the capacity of wine to evoke ideas and images. It is not true of every wine, but some have sufficient personality and character to send the mind traveling across worlds and through time.  Happily,these wines are not necessarily the most expensive.
