93 Points - Tyto alba Touriga Nacional Regional Tejo 2012
"Named after the barn owl (Tyto alba) that nests in the woods of the Lezirias estate, this has great tannins that give shape to the dense black fruits. With a powerful structure and so much of the Touriga Nacional perfumes, this is a wine for aging. Drink from 2018."

92 Points - N ostalgia Alvarinho 10 Barricas Vinho Verde DOC 2013
"From old Alvarinho vines, this wine was fermented in wood to round it out and give extra richness. The wine certainly is full-bodied, intensely fruity, packed with apricot as well as citrus flavors. The toast element is as much a presence as a taste, giving the wine the possibility of aging. It’s too fresh now; drink from 2016."

92 Points - T yto alba Red DOC Do Tejo 2012
"This red blend with Alicante Bouschet is impressive both for its color and its dense, powerful texture. It’s a powerhouse of ripe black fruits, concentrated tannins and perfumed fruitiness. Named after the barn owl, found in the woods around the vineyard, it will be ready to drink from 2018." ONLINE EXCLUSIVE

90 Points - A breu Callado Red Reserva Regional Alentejano 2012
"This is a bold and ripely fruity wine. Fine tannins and blackberry fruits are already well combined in a big and juicy whole. The wine does have a structure and layers of wood aging that suggest it will age. Drink from 2018." EDITORS CHOICE/ONLINE EXCLUSIVE

90 Points - T yto alba Merlot DOC Do Tejo 2012
"A rare wine for Portugal, a 100% Merlot, this is dense, very rich and spicy. Plenty of juicy black fruits are still developing along with the concentrated tannins. It’s a wine that is close to being too concentrated, saved by the fresher fruity end. Drink from 2018." ONLINE EXCLUSIVE

89 Points - H erdade de Catapereiro Red Regional Tejo 2013
"This is a big wine with dark tannins and rich black fruits that are powerful and dense. The strong mineral texture comes from the rocky soils of Catapereiro. Wood aging adds to the complexity. Drink from 2017." BEST BUY/ONLINE EXCLUSIVE

89 Points - L ua Cheia em Vinhas Velhas Red DOC Douro 2013

88 Points - S amora Red Regional Tejo 2013

88 Points - T yto Alba White DOC Do Tejo 2014
"This ultrayoung wine is all fruit. It is textured with minerality and a chalky character that is keeping the fresh green fruits in balance. The wine is delicious, although really not ready. Better to wait until 2016."

85 Points - A zul Portugal Red DOC Palmela 2012
"This soft wine has red berry fruits and a tangy, stalky texture. It’s fruity and smooth, with fresh acidity that gives a bright aftertaste. This wine, from the small Palmela region at the heart of the Setúbal peninsula, is not for aging. Drink now." ONLINE EXCLUSIVE
