Ratings & Reviews


99 Points & #15 Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018 - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is a ripe and generous wine, with tannins that are well integrated into the powerful black-fruit core. It is rich in a black plum flavor that's cut by fine acidity. Complex, balanced and full of long-term potential, drink this impressive wine from 2029." - Roger Voss (12/1/2018)

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Densely packed, with a wall of baker's chocolate up front, followed by muscular black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Shows waves of brambly grip through the finish, along with flashes of apple wood and Turkish coffee. A big wine. Best from 2035 through 2055. 830 cases made. - JM (Dec 2018)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Vintage Porto is a mostly an equal blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with various others comprising the last 20% of the juice. It comes in with 95 grams of residual sugar. This was in bottle about two months when tasted. Dark in color, with fine and expressive fruit, this shows intensity of flavor more than pure power. The fruit demonstrates nice lift as it opens with air. As with the Offley, this is a very nice success in this vintage, showing me fine fruit and reasonable structure. The concentration is good too, but it's not quite as impressive as the first two components. It is still excellent overall, the most exuberant of the three Sogrape Portos. We'll see how it ages and develops. For the moment, it is worth leaning up." - Mark Squires (19th Jul 2018)
