88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2006

($12) Bright, medium red. Tangy redcurrant and medicinal cherry scents, with a subtle note of anise. Soft, gentle and sweet, showing red berry, cherry and sweet tobacco flavors and no obvious tannins. The silky finish offers a gentle kick of bitter cherry. This really shows its Bordeaux heritage (the property is owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild, owner of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild), and compares favorably with plenty of Medoc wines costing more than twice as much. It's also a strong effort from a difficult vintage.

Solid

A solid, well-made blend deserving of its IWC rating. Would rate it higher but I've discovered other imports from Portugal I like even better - a country now getting serious about wines other than port.
Here is a great value!

This Portugese wine exceeded my expectations and surprised me until I noticed the "Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)" in very small letters on the label. Indeed it is closer to a solid Medoc than anything I have ever tasted from Portugal. while it doesn't really live up to the Baron Rothschild provenance it is a great value for the price. I intend to buy more and expect it to be a staple table wine for us this winter.

About Portugal

For most American wine lovers Portuguese wine means Port, the rich fortified Portugal wine made in the hot, dry Douro Valley in the northern part of the country. But the past decade has witnessed a greater flow of high-quality table wines, mostly red, into the U.S. market.
