Reviews and Ratings

Michel Pambrun rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A lush and creamy red blend from the Symington Family (Dow, Warres, Grahams) Known for their ports, this dry red is a blend of grapes from their own vineyards in the Douro Valley: Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinta Barroca.
A spectacular value, this wine shows an abundance of ripe plum, black current, dark cherries and blackberries on the palate supported by floral notes of violets and lavender. A silky, lingering finish showcases lush mocha notes with ripe tannins and a beautiful acidity to balance all that fruit. An amazing food wine, try it with BBQ meats! Highly Recommended

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.
