Critics Ratings

‘This lithe red oozes with rich spiciness, showing concentrated flavors of kirsch, dark chocolate, mineral and allspice. Features a creamy core, presenting medium-grained tannins that lengthen out nicely. The unctuous finish is filled with a vibrant silkiness.’ - Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator, 94/100 (Jun 2014) 

‘From Cima Corgo, Douro. 100% Tinta Roriz. Released only in the finest years. Vivid and deep in colour with intense ripe fruit aromas and notes of oak. Soft and round on the palate, very well balanced. A long and lingering finish. Pungent and potent on the nose. Lots of sweetness and ripeness on the start. Really big and powerful though the tannins are seductive. Sweeter than 2003! Long. Very sumptuous.’ - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5+/20 (Sept 2016)
