95(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2000

Saturated deep ruby. Great minerally aromas of black plum, black cherry, roasted meat and deep spices. Very sweet and very dense, with youthfully backward black fruit, mineral and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes with wonderfully ripe, sweet tannins and superb persistence and grip. Has the verve most '97s lack. This may ultimately challenge the great '94. (Kobrand, Inc., New York, NY)

I'm tasting a wine that seems to blend the taste of rich dark fruit with the taste of slightly (yes, I said slightly) older casks. This is a wine that does "well" for it's vintage - but has the makings of a future "classic":...
Now that's Vintage Port!

I was blown away by the way this wine made me think. Extremely deep, beefy, and penetrating! So concentrated with tannins that were firm yet distinctly gentle on the palate. Wonderful! This should be a great gift for a newborn's 21st birthday!

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.
