Critical Acclaim

SP93 Wine Spectator Apr 30, 2012

"Filled to the brim with sweet fruit flavors of blackberry, mineral and fig that tap into a deep well of molten chocolate notes. Finishes very spicy, showing forthright grip. Textbook power and brawn. Best from 2020 through 2040. 691 cases made." (93 pts.)

WS92 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2018

"This is a big, saturated Port from a hot season, a widely declared vintage noted for concentrated wines. Vale D. Maria, southeast of Pinhão, above the Rio Torto, produced a meaty 2009, its deep purple color revealing black depths of fruit and tannins that combine in umami sweetness. Savory notes of mushrooms, walnut skins and floral spice show a wine at the cusp of drinkability, needing a few years in the cellar to open past its blackout power." (92 pts.)

ST88 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Nov/Dec 2012

"Saturated ruby. Sappy aromas of kirsch and licorice. Very sweet and concentrated, with a slightly high-toned quality but also solid framing acidity to the primary dark fruit flavors. Very rich and muscular but still youthfully monolithic. The long finish features fine tannins and well-integrated alcohol (the label says 21.5%!)." (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.
