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.

WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2015
Mainly Touriga Nacional with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a structured wine. The perfumes of the Touriga are balanced by the tannins of the Cabernet to give a wine that’s dense and firmly full in the mouth. Wood-aged, it has stylishness and a good promise for aging. Drink from 2018.
RP8787 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 25th Jun 2014
The 2011 Touriga Nacional / Cabernet Sauvignon Follies is a 70-30 blend of Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in French oak (25% first use; 35% second use and 40% third use) for approximately 1 year. It comes in at 14% alcohol. There is not necessarily a lot of depth here, but in other respects it is pretty fine with an amazingly fresh feel to it. Elegant and lifted, this has a lingering and flavorful finish with some hints of complexity. Its demeanor makes it reasonably transparent, too, even with a few oaky nuances. The moderate tannins tighten just a bit with air, but it comes around well. It should hold a few years nicely, but it is approachable now. Drink now–2020.
