Wine Enthusiast

 More elegant than many Madeiras in this price range, with delicate aromas and flavors of nuts, coffee and toffee that arenít overpowering. It's sweet and very smooth in the mouth, ending with honeyed flavors that are balanced by a lemony tang.  (11/ 2006)

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and D„o area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
