Casa Ferreirinha 1991 Douro “Barca-Velha” (Portugal) – Elegant, perhaps overly so, with lightly sweet fruit in a faded box of antique clothing. The finish is lengthy, but there’s a hint of caramelization at the fringe, and the wine promises a bit more than it delivers. It’s owner, while praising the wine, insists that it’s performing below norm. (4/08)
