Wine Enthusiast

 This wine already has delicious red fruits. It is soft, made to be drunk young with attractive fruitiness and light tannins. (RV)  (2/2017)

Wine Spectator

 The wild raspberry and ripe strawberry notes have a zesty edge in this medium-bodied red, flanked with herb and white pepper details. Offers a tangy, mineral-tinged finish, with moderate tannins. (GS)  (4/2017)

K&L Notes

This delicious Douro red shows hallmark Douro aromatics of dark fruits, licorice and spices. On the palate, the flavors are surprisingly fresh and bright, particularly given the usual heft and lower acidity of the region's wines. Two likely contributing factors to this style are Casa Ferreirinha's experience as the original innovators in the production of fine Douro dry reds (Barca Velha, for example) and their light touch in the cellar. Simply a delicious bottle of red wine for the price.

- 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 Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
