93 Points - Tyto alba Red DOC Do Tejo 2016
“Vines planted within a national reserve have produced this powerful blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Alicante Bouschet. The wine's almost black color and dense blackberry fruits are balanced by the solid tannins that are just approaching maturity. Drink from late 2020.” EDITORS' CHOICE

92 Points - Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas Reserva Especial Red DOC Douro 2017
“A field blend of old vines is the backbone of this dense wine. Dark fruits and solid tannins are right upfront, still young and still with a bold structure. Drink this powerful wine from 2022.” EDITORS' CHOICE

91 Points - Album Reserva Regional Alentejano 2017
“The luscious fruit of an Alentejo wine is in full force here. The wine, with its 40% Petit Verdot, is dark colored and rich in black fruits and juicy acidity. Tannins still show firmly, ready to soften over the next few months. Drink from 2021.”

91 Points - Monte da Baía Reserva Reg. Península de Setúbal 2017
“Produced at the Ermelinda Freitas winery, the wine is a rich blend in which the local Castelão grape features prominently. The wood aging adds spice to the red fruits and dense texture. The wine is still young and will be better from 2021.”

91 Points - Nostalgia Alvarinho Vinho Verde DOC 2018
“Alvarinho from the privileged region of Monção and Melgaço has given a beautifully ripe and fragrant fruit. Aging the wine on its lees has increased the density of its texture as well as its yellow and white fruit flavors. Drink the wine now.”

90 Points - Insurgente DOC Dão 2017
“This blend of Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro has a finely delineated structure that derives from fruit tannins, minerality and touches of spice. Produced from old vines, the wine has a rich density, layers of blackberry fruits and a generous texture. The wine will be ready from late 2020.”

89 Points - Azul Portugal Reserva DOC Douro 2016
There is a traditional Douro blend in this wine that expresses both the firm fruits and the minerality of a Douro wine. It has some fine tannins as well as spice and toast from the wood aging that has smoothed the wine's structure. Drink now."

89 Points - Secretum DOC Douro 2018
“This wood-fermented wine is pure Arinto, spicy as well as intensely fruity. The wine's steely edge is ready to soften into a smooth, rounded texture that will make for a fine wine from 2021.”
87 Points - Maria Bonita Alvarinho Regional Minho 2018
“Crisp while also creamily textured, this is an immediately attractive, accessible wine. Its lemon and green plum flavors are fresh, tautly textured and refreshing. Drink now.”
