Critical Acclaim

SP91 Wine Spectator Mar 31, 2017

"Creamy, with plentiful ripe raspberry, red plum and milk chocolate flavors, this medium- to full-bodied red is marked by spice and mineral details through the velvety finish. Drink now through 2019. 7,800 cases made." (91 pts.)

WE87 Wine Enthusiast 6/1/2016

"Perhaps Colossal was an unfortunate name for this wine, suggesting something that is overpowering. But then this massive, dark wine does live up to its name. Its concentration and richness is underlined by the bitter licorice extration flavors. A lighter touch would have been better." (87 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.
