Portugal is most famous (and justifiably so) for its Port wines, fortified wines that are typically sweet and often served with dessert. Port wines come in many styles such as Tawny, Late Bottled Vintage, etc, and are classified by how they were produced.

Besides Port, however, Portugal is also one of the fastest-rising wine countries in the world (as far as quality and production) when it comes to table wines. You'll find some unbelievable values in Portuguese table wines, with grapes like Touriga Nacional at the forefront.

This is a wonderful wood-aged, mature Port full of the classic old gold flavors and intense acidity over a dry texture that is a signature of this producer. The wine is impressive, balanced and ready to drink.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2019
A juicy, up-front style, with hazelnut, raisin, cinnamon and dried cherry notes that are flattering through the gently sweet finish. Drink now. 4,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port is a field blend coming in with 126 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It was bottled in 2018. Dry and stern — this is the style you’d expect from the comments in the accompanying producer note — this shows off some wood, plus very fine concentration and power for the level. This is not always an open and friendly 20, though. The 30, actually, seems far livelier and more expressive (although woodier and more mature, to be sure). This 20 is one that intends to grab your palate and not let go. Some sweetness and a touch of spice around the edges redeem it. That counters the power and woody demeanor. It drank particularly well a couple of days later. On many levels, this is impressive for its age. It works well overall in its style.

Have a cigar. It’s the right match for this very British, old-school Port. The warm, peppery alcohol seems to ask for it, while the orange zest and walnut flavors will taste refreshing aginst the tobacco smoke. This has a clarity and crispness to keep its fat texture buttoned up.
ST9090 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Mar/Apr 1998
Complex aromas of toffee, roasted nuts, lead pencil, orange peel and caraway seed. Intensely flavored fruit is silky but nicely delineated; offers a fresh flavor of orange peel. Not at all thick, but brisk and vibrant. Finishes clean and long, with hints of smoked nuts and marzipan. This has far stronger material than the 10-Year-Old, which seemed clumsy and dull in comparison.

Solid, with hazelnut, fig, plum cake and dried cherry notes in lockstep from start to finish. A streak of hazelnut husk tilts to the drier side of the tawny spectrum, resulting in mouthwatering cut on the finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases made.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2004
The light ruby cast to the color indicates the fruit that’s still apparent in this wine. Sweet and silky, its date flavors integrate well with the alcohol. This is a quiet, shimmering ten-year-old for flan.

SP9898 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2018
This packs a lot of fun, with a wallop of blackberry, fig, boysenberry and açai berry compote flavors working together, laced with a mouthwatering licorice snap note and driven by a fresh, well-detailed finish. A roasted apple wood accent is integrated as well, lending textural contrast through the vivacious finish. Best from 2030 through 2055. 350 cases made, 183 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WE9797 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2018
Very floral, intense and ripe, this is a wine that is based around big black fruits as well as fine acidity. It is obviously destined for long aging with its powerful dry tannins and perfumed acidity. Drink this wine from 2028.
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Jul 2018
The 2016 Vintage Port, bottled in May for release in October 2018, is mostly a 48/31 blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, with various other grapes and some very old vines for the rest. It comes in with 111 grams of residual sugar. This is a very elegant Dow’s, but there is certainly both power and concentration lurking underneath. Adding fine fruit, it is expressive and sophisticated, a very refined offering that seems not quite as burly as in some years. It is still exceptionally appealing, but it was curiously understated when seen. Some bottle shock, perhaps? The fresh 2016 Vintage? This is an illustration of Charles Symington’s philosophy, as relayed to me, that the “wines should be in harmony from the first day.” I don’t think this will be a great Dow’s, but it is an enjoyable one. If it wakes up, it might be entitled to an uptick. For the moment, between the top blends in the Symington stable, I’d lean to Graham’s as the best in this vintage. Both are easily outclassed by the single-plot wines. There were 5,480 cases produced.
WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
Blended from Bomfim in the Cima Corgo, and Señora de Ribeira in the Douro Superior, this vintage is prettier than most young Dow’s of the past. The fruit feels cooler than most of the other top wines of 2016, with red and purple highlights, both in flavor and in floral scents. Alcohol warms the finish, but it’s the impression of luscious fruit and flowers that lasts. Rich and complete, this is a wine for the long haul.
