Where It's From

Country / Portugal

View more wines from 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.

Rich and supple, offering creamy flavors of hazelnut, Christmas pudding and ripe cherry, with cocoa powder notes. Lush and spicy on the long, ripe finish. Drink now. 1,800 cases imported.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2021
Stylish cherry, plum and dried anise notes have a racy feel, ending with a late echo of dried orange peel on the finish. Drink now. 5,460 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 2/1/2009
This has a fine bite, offering its richness on the edge of a knife. Wood and fruit tannins are very evident, giving the concentration a dry, fresh core, over which dried fruit flavors pass. It has some age to it, as if there are older wines in the blend.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2018
Notes of raspberry liqueur and coffee cake make this a dessert in a glass. Its bright caramel-apple flavors last on spicy warmth, referencing both the alcohol and the wood in which the wine aged. It’s balanced and would work as well with a savory caramelized-onion dish as it would with an unsweetened plum tart.

SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2016
Broad, rich and elegant, with creamy, supple flavors of butterscotch, toasted coconut and hazelnut. The luscious finish is loaded with spice and cocoa details. Seductive. Drink now. 4,000 cases imported.
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2008
An elegant tawny, perfumed with soft tannins and a good edge of wood acidity and spirit. The wine is dry, densely flavored, tasting mature, showing a good balance between young sweetness and age, with everything well integrated.
RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Dec 2018
The NV 20 Years Old Tawny Porto is a typical Douro blend sourced from juice ranging from 15 to 30 years old. It was bottled in September 2018 with a Vinolok cork and 115 grams per liter of residual sugar. This adds a little power and notable complexity to the 10 Year this issue, but it seems a little understated in concentration and surprisingly mature. The brandy is a bit prominent, but that improves. Its bright and gentle demeanor won’t leave you with a “wow” impression, but it sneaks up on you and it’s easy to like eventually. It showed better a few days later, at which point it was notably improved. Maybe some bottle shock plus travel shock before it was tasted rendered it a little closed at first. It finishes with classic flavors laced with caramel nuances. There were 60,000 bottles produced.
WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2006
Flavors of salted caramel and orange peel give this tawny complexity. It’s warm with more citrus fruit coming up in the end. For fresh roasted almonds.

Citrus zest accents provide a zesty backdrop to the lush, rich and creamy flavors of butterscotch, white chocolate and café au lait. Fresh and minerally on the finish, with notes of sea salt. Complex and pure. Drink now. 200 cases imported. (Kim Marcus)
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 1/1/2020
This is a beautifully concentrated wine. Rich and dense, it offers dried fruits, spice and intensity. The wine’s spirit edge acts as a lift, bringing out acidity, honey, walnuts and a complex perfumed aftertaste. Drink now.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2018
Pretty, with bergamot, date, fig and caramelized peach flavors gliding through, framed by a caramel note that lingers on the polished finish. This gains intensity as it opens in the glass. Lovely. Drink now. 780 cases made, 300 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Reserve Porto

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 54734

WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/21
Bin 27 remains one of the most reliably delicious Ruby reserves, presenting the plump Fonseca style in a wine that’s remarkably easy to drink. Its scent of purple plums emanates from a luscious texture, the wine’s freshness firmed up by schist tannins. Enjoy a glass with crusty peasant bread and meltingly ripe Queijo Serra da Estrela.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2012
Fresh and grapey, with plenty of grip and power behind dark plum, chocolate and berry flavors that feature slate and pepper notes. Drink now through 2020. (Kim Marcus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 1999
David Guimaraens, who makes the wines for both Taylor and Fonseca, blends Bin 27 to share the deep richness and fruitiness of a big, round Fonseca Vintage. With all its elements beautifully integrated, the wine comes across as fresh plum and figgy fruit, round and lovely tight in the middle as Fonseca Portos are blended to be. This generous wine consistently shows at the top of the proprietary ruby class.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2011
Full, rich and fruity wine, enticingly aromatic, with strawberry fruits and an easy, just tannic edge. The wine is soft, ripe, the fruits finely balanced with acidity.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2018
This familiar brand exhibits the lush Fonseca style. Tannins are encased in generous red fruits, giving a wine that is smooth with just a touch of structure. This perfumed wine is ready to drink.
