Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Porta 6 Vidigal Wines 2012 is a great value wine. This smooth and fruity wine has nice aromas and flavours of blackberry, plum and spice. Must give this bottle a try! Tasted December 2, 2015 (88/100)
Mymi Thesingingsommelier - Sommelier, FWS rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

The beautiful and lively label for this wine was created by a local artist from Lisbon who aspired to capture the hustle and bustle of the city right down to the tramway!
This red wine is a blend of 50% Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo), 40% Castelao ( a Portuguese indigenous variety) and 10% Touriga Nacional (another Portuguese native, a very important varietal in Port production).
Bright beautiful ruby red color with a medium intensity, clean, spicy, slightly vegetative nose. Full of fragrant ripe red fruit and candied beets.
Dry, approachable and smoky on the palate with soft tannins and juicy acidity. Full of blueberry, raspberry compote, masala spices and toasted oak flavors. YUM!
Delicious and incredibly food friendly!

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.
