94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2006

($100) Saturated deep ruby. Sweet aromas of black cherry, cassis, licorice, molasses, minerals, toffee and violet. Dense, sweet and pliant, with outstanding precision and depth of flavor. Like the Silval, this boasts a seductively creamy texture. The explosive, mounting finish offers a fine dusting of ripe, suave tannins and great breadth. Deceptively easy to taste today owing to its finesse, but it's hard to believe that it won't shut down in bottle in the near future. This wine features a particularly high percentage of touriga nacional.

Wow, the fruit just leaps from the glass! Black cherry, plum and a bit of dates. Super lush mouth feel, with lots of candied berry fruit and plum flavors. The finish went on and on and was delicious with the chocolate pecan pie and chocolate raspberry cheesecake we had for dessert. This wine will only get better as the years go by, but we couldn't wait! Obviously, I am getting a few more bottles to cellar.

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.
