Winemaker Notes

This blend is very dark red, with crimson highlights with balsamic oak aromas, as well as fig and black plum and hints of tobacco. The palate shows great structure and balance. Mineral notes mix with the aforementioned fruit, leading to an expressive and complex and finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

Sinewy yet refined, with impressive power behind the firm, crisp flavors of dark plum, olive and boysenberry, matched to notes of tarragon. Presents focused minerality midpalate, offering a long, vibrant finish of dried wild herb and slate

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Reserva red is, as always, an old vines field blend (with 80% of the grapes sourced from vines 80+ years old, plus 20% Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca from vines of approximately 20 years of average age). The blend was aged in French barriques (70% new) for 17 months. Crisp and elegant, this has a beautifully balanced feel to it. There is nothing obvious or sexy here. It simply becomes more expressive and interesting with aeration (4+ hours), at which time it proves that there are promises here that will be kept. At the moment, unevolved and not too far off of its bottling date, it still has some things to prove in the cellar.

Quinta do Vallado, , Portugal
Quinta do Vallado
In the heart of Portugal’s most famous wine region – the Douro Valley – near the historical center of Regua, the Quinta do Vallado vineyards, winery and guest house spread across both banks of the Corgo River at the very point where it meets the Douro. With winemaking references that date back to 1716, the Quinta belonged to the legendary Portuguese vintner D. Antonia Adelaide Ferreira, and has remained in the family through modern times.

The current owners, Joao Ferreria Alvares Ribeiro, Francisco Ferreira and Francisco Olazabal, are the sixth generation of this remarkable family, and the family’s mission to produce some of the best still wines of this fertile valley continues with the red blends and varietals that are exported worldwide. Of the 38-hectare Estate, 26 hectares are filled with vines 60 years and older. It is from these vines that Quinta do Vallado’s Red Reserve and Touriga Nacional wines are made, so it is no wonder that the wines are often found to be rated and reviewed among the best wines from the Douro.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
