This Portuguese blend opens with toasted caramel nose. Generous dark fruit and cassis on the palate. Respectable finish. Nicely balanced, full-bodied and smooth. Enjoy with prime rib, BBQ ribs or burgers. Good value. Tasted August 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An sophisticated blend of Portuguese grapes that impart aromas of blueberries, violets and pine, carrying through to a blueberry and peppery finish. Wonderful acidity, making this wine food versatile, but perfect with beef dishes.
Enjoy now or lay down for another few years.
Tasted November 2019.
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Notes of fresh dark fruit, black cherry, black berry, and a little red cherry too. Nine months of French oak aging provides pleasant accents of baking spice and smoke. Generous acidity and tannins, good structure, suitable for short to mid-term aging. A pretty nice red blend that will complement roasted pork and chanfana, a dish of goat, white pepper, and paprika.
|Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The Destino Fifth Empire 2015, a generous and classy wine made in Douro, Portugal, reveals pleasant aromas of sour cherry, black raspberry, mint, bread and nutmeg. Made from 45% Tinta Roriz, 30% Touriga Franca and 25% Touriga National, this wine will please the amateur of new style of grapes. Its full body will charm with its long, fruity finish and a balance that provides numerous food-pairing options. Palate: sour plum, black raspberry, tea, graphite, tree moss and oak. Enjoy.
|Destino's Fifth Empire 2015 is a 45% Tinta Roriz, 30% Touriga Franca and 25% Touriga Nacional red wine blend with layers of earthy florals, wild dark berries, dark spice flavours on the palate and mouth-watering acidity. Tannins are also grippy and looking for some grilled meat to chew on. Enjoy now with grilled game sausages or hold in cellar for three years to marry and mellow. The Fifth Empire is the concept of a global Portuguese empire with spiritual and temporal power, based on Daniel 2 and the Book of Revelation. - Community Wine Reviews|
