Critical Acclaim

WE93 Wine Enthusiast 8/1/2014

"Almost black in color, this is a powerful and concentrated wine. Named after the barn owl that is found in the woods around the vines, it is packed with dense and dry tannins. Acidity comes from the black currant fruit while perfumes come from the Touriga Nacional in the blend. Drink this complex wine from 2017." (93 pts.)

RP87 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 25th Jun 2014

"The 2011 Tyto Alba red is a blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 20% Alicante Bouschet aged in used oak (40% American, the rest French) for 12 months. The brand name references a barn owl (featured on the label), symbolizing sustainable agriculture policies of the winery. Elegant in the mid-palate, it does not project a lot of solidity, but it has a fresh feel to it and lovely aromatics, although laced with oaky nuances. Rather refined, its controlled tannins pop out with some aeration and it has some brightness around the edges. It should drink nicely in the short to mid-term. Note: This is not imported. The price is just set forth for illustration by the winery. Drink now–2018." (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.
