92 Points - Pegos Claros Grande Escolha DOC Palmela 2016
Winemaker Bernardo Cabral was able to work with 100-year-old Castelão vines grown in the Setúbal peninsula when producing this wine. Aged in wood giving minty flavors to the wine, it has density and generous black fruits. The wine is ripe, rich and is now just ready to drink.”
91 Points - Insurgente Premium DOC Dão 2017
A small-production bottling, this wood-aged wine is rich, full of black-plum and light toast flavors. It is a powerful wine, dense with both tannins and serious fruits. It is a wine for aging, and should not be touched before 2021.” 

90 Points - Tyto alba Castelão DOC Do Tejo 2017
“Fermented in amphorae, as is the fashion, the wine has a fine rich character that gives an extra dimension of smoothness to the black fruits. Driven by this density, the wine has weight and potential. Drink from 2021.”

89 Points - Azul Portugal DOC Dão 2016
An attractive, ripe and fruity wine, this has become softly textured as it has matured. Balanced red-fruit flavors and acidity play well together, giving a wine with weight as well as poise. Drink now.” BEST BUY 

88 Points - Maria Bonita Loureiro Vinho Verde DOC 2019
“Soft and ripe, here is a fruity style of Vinho Verde. Full of melon and apricot flavors, the wine also has a satisfying layer of acidity and bright fruit. Drink now.” BEST BUY 

87 Points/Best Buy - Lua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas White DOC Douro 2019
“Field blend old vines give a wine that has richness as well as fine, dense white fruits. Still tangy and vibrant, with young fruitiness, the wine is worth aging. Drink from 2021.”

87 Points - Tyto alba White DOC Do Tejo 2019
The merest hint of wood aging has given a smoothness to the attractive white fruits of this wine. A blend of Fernão Pires and Arinto, it has a refreshingly fruity character. Although young, it is ready to drink.”
