Critical Acclaim

WE92 Wine Enthusiast 12/31/2014

"Still dark and dense, this young wine has power and structure on its side. The tannins and concentrated firm texture promise aging, allowing the big black fruits to be released. Made from vines in the Douro Superior; drink from 2017." (92 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.
