Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A beautiful, rich dark wine with aromas of blackberry, mint, smoke, and a touch of mocha. The taste follows in the rich style with blackberry and black cherry, nice acidity and velvety tannins. A great value, and fantastic for sipping, with pizza, or with a nice rare steak.




Natalie's Review

Delaforce Real Companhia Velha Touriga Nacional 2011, Douro D.O.C., Portugal: A full-bodied, generous red wine with mocha and toasty oak on the nose. Black plum and raspberry with dark spices. Good finish on this D.O.C. wine. There's been a revolution in dry red wines from Portugal: try this one and you'll know what I'm talking about. This particular wine hails from a well-known producer of port, the fortified dessert wine. The Touriga Nacional grape offers signature black fruit aromas and richness. Loaded with toasty oak and tarry black fruit with a bitter bite. Decant 1 hour. Drink: 2014-2018. 324517 14% XD 750 mL  $20.95 Score: 92/100. April 26, 2014 Best Value Red Wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
