Critical Acclaim

SP88 Wine Spectator Jun 30, 2017

"Forward in feel, with warmed blackberry and boysenberry jam flavors laced with singed vanilla bean and mulling spice hints. Delivers a good shot of tobacco at the end. Drink now. 35,200 cases made." (88 pts.)

WE89 Wine Enthusiast 12/31/2011

"Dusty, perfumed tannins are suspended in a ripe and fruity wine, its damson skin texture given an extra boost by tannins. Very dark, concentrated wine, full of character." (89 pts.)

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Jan 2019

"The NV First Estate Reserve Ruby Porto is a blend of typical Douro grapes from Cima Corgo held for four years in used French oak. It comes in with 93 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is produced “to commemorate the firm’s acquisition in 1744 of its first property in the upper Douro Valley, the Casa dos Alambiques at Lugar das Lages.” It’s pretty tight on opening even though it was from a March 2017 bottling (although unless you can read production stamps, that isn’t so easy to determine). Big, dry and rather powerful, this is rather intense on the finish. It shows both classic flavor and fine structure. It is a bit straightforward, though, tending to make its way with power more than any expression of fruit. Still, with its very reasonable price point, this is certainly a good bargain, seeming very much in the “vintage character” style." (88 pts.)

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.
