Critical Acclaim

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Aug 2019

"The 2017 Vale de Cavalos red is a blend from old vines of 50% Touriga Nacional, 20% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz and 10% Tinta Barroca, aged in an 80/20 mixture of stainless steel and used French oak for six months. It comes in at 13.7% alcohol. This seems rich and a little jammy. It is immediately impressive because of its big-fruit feel at first, but it lacks some of the freshness of the last couple of vintages. The Coroa and the Reserva this issue might be fresher too. However, this compensates with more depth and roundness, granting that they weren’t all here and tasted side by side. There is a touch of charcoal as well, perhaps a reductive hint, but it doesn’t destroy the performance." (88 pts.)

WE92 Wine Enthusiast 12/31/2019

"From grapes grown in the eastern Douro Superior region, this wine is dense and structured. Its dry core is still young, bringing out rich black fruits and spice. The wine should age further, so drink from 2021." (92 pts.)

SP88 Wine Spectator Web only – 2020

"Black cherry and currant flavors fill this supple, full-bodied red, with underpinnings of black tea, anise and violet lingering into the plush, mineral-edged finish. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca. Drink now through 2023. 3,700 cases made, 2,400 cases imported." (88 pts.)

Douro

Located in northwest Portugal, The Douro region follows the path of the Douro river. It's home to Portugal's most prized export, port wines, as well as a blossoming selection of world-class table wines. Typical red grapes used in Douro are Touriga Nacional (which produces tannic, dark red wines) and Tempranillo (under the name Tinta Roriz). The steep slopes of the Douro River Valley make it difficult to farm, but the resulting wines are worth all the effort.

Portugal

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.
