96-98 points Wine Advocate '...mostly a Touriga Nacional, with 25% from a field blend of old vines. It was aged for 12 months in 80% new French oak and comes in at 14.2% alcohol...Simply sensational on the nose, this is Touriga in full flight. While this has some elegance in the mid-palate, elsewhere it stands out. The aromatics are pungent, as noted, but the structure is exceptional too. Powerful and gripping?but never too astringent?this is built to age, develop and become more complex in time...There were 375 cases produced.'
