98Wine Spectator

Smells like fresh orchids, with loads of ripe, clean fruit. Full-bodied, medium-sweet. Very powerful and racy; lasts for minutes on the palate...Greatest Graham ever, young or old.

94Robert M. Parker Jr.

Grapy, unformed, black raspberry liqueur and licorice-infused cassis notes leap from the glass of tis opaque purple-colored wine. Sweet, plush, rich, and accessible, it is a forward, lush, concentrated effort...

94Stephen Tanzer

Superripe, bottomless nose of black fruits, mocha, bitter chocolate and flowers.

17.5Jancis Robinson

...Very pure, damson compote, also that nutty cedary edge and some floral violet notes. Dark and restrained. Lovely fine but mouth-arresting tannins. Full of fruit, so rich but well structured...



Portugal is best known for its two legendary fortified wines, Port and Madeira, but it also produces significant amounts of red and white table wine. In most years it ranks around the 10th or 11th largest wine producer in the world. In 2013, for instance, Portugal was the 11th largest producer just after Germany. Wine has always been produced in Portugal and in fact the country was the first to organize an appellation system, which it did in 1756, nearly 200 years before the French set up their appellations. The highest quality wines are labeled D.O.C. for Denominaçào de Origem Controlada. Many of the most innovative winemakers today, however, are avoiding the appellation system, which they deem too stifling for modern winemaking practices. The Douro Valley is the nation’s most important wine producing region, and it is the capital of Port production. The Portuguese island of Madeira, located 400 miles west of Morocco, is the nation’s other famous wine region, having produced Madeira for export for more than 400 years. Many red and white wine grapes grow in Portugal, though the best known is Touriga Nacional, the red grape used for Port and, increasingly, high quality table wines. Touriga Nacional produces dark, tannic, fruity wines.
