Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet and Syrah. Dark garnet red, fragrant ripe cherries, spice, slight floral notes and oak on the fragrant nose. The palate gives red berries, spice, anise and oak. Dry and full-bodied with a long spicy berry finish.
This Portuguese red wine blend from the winery Catapereiro Escolha is mostly made from local and native grapes and varieties, such as Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet, with a splash of Syrah grapes. Produced by Companhia das LezĂ­rias, this single vineyard wine offers solid value. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
