The Best Portuguese Wines

Portuguese wines are rich in history, with winemaking in Portugal dating back to the Roman Empire.

Portugal is most famous for Port (or “Porto”) wines, which have been produced since the 1600s. Port is classified as a fortified wine and is made in several different styles, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage, Late Bottle Vintage and Colheita. Madeira is another example of fortified Portuguese wine.

White wines in Portugal are most commonly represented by a light, bubbly, low-alcohol wine made from grapes with low sugar content and are called “Vinho Verde”. Examples of Vinho Verde do exist in red and rosé varieties but are most typically sold within Portugal.

Other Portuguese wines of note are the dry red (still) wines from important areas such as the Douro Valley, Dão, and Alentejo. These wines have improved in quality over the years and are becoming popular worldwide.

  7. Dow Vale do Bomfim

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55777

    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/21
    Half of this wine is a field blend, while the balance is tourigas franca and nacional, estate grown mostly around Bomfim in the Cima Corgo and upriver at Senhora da Ribeira. The wine is warm and grapey when first opened, but air brings freshness and delicate florals. It’s a simple Douro red and a terrific value.
    RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jun 2021
    The 2019 Tinto Vale do Bomfim Dow is 50% a field blend, 30% Touriga Franca and 20% Touriga Nacional, all aged for six months in an equal mixture of stainless steel and French oak (15% new for the half of the wine in wood). It comes in at 13.6% alcohol. A very solid wine and a nice bargain for the money, this touches all the bases, showing reasonable concentration, flavor and freshness. There’s even a little firmness on the finish, although structure is not the biggest deal here. Still, this is a very respectable offering for a nice price. Drink it on the younger side, but it might hold a little too.

  9. Graham’s Vintage Porto

    2003 / 750 ml. | Item#21920

    WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2005
    This is a great Port, from a great house. It is packed with solid, structured, rich and intense black fruit flavors. Its tannins show considerable aging potential. It is a big, ripe wine, balanced by a long, lingering dark aftertaste.
    WS9696 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2005
    An expansive chord of mineral and black fruit flavor, this vintage of Graham’s is all-enveloping in its sheer power. The tannins and the fruit strike a balance with dense, floral, purple-black flavors over crushed stone. That schisty grip of the tannin ends up feeling supple and curvaceous, defining the boundaries of the fruit rather than restricting it. The best vintage of Graham’s in recent memory, this 2003 should be drinking well from 2025 to 2046, and should live well beyond that.
    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Nov 2005
    Violets, roses, spices, and candied dark fruits emanate from the glass of the murky black/purple colored 2003 Graham Vintage Port. After four days of air, this wine’s aromatics sweetened further, displaying jammy blackberry and blueberry scents. Bold, full-bodied, and expansive, the Graham benefited the most from extensive contact with air of all the 2003s tasted for this report. This opulently jammy wine assaults the palate with powerful yet soft layers of oily, candied red fruits as well as notes of tar and hints of mocha. A highly concentrated effort, it is creamy textured, suave, and reveals an admirably long finish filled with additional layers of dark fruits intermingled with spices. Projected maturity: 2030–2055.
    ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jan/Feb 2006
    Deep, saturated ruby. Initially reticent aromas of dark chocolate and nuts; showed a high-pitched eucalyptus quality as it opened in the glass. Then almost shockingly huge and rich in fruit, with wonderfully lush, complex flavors of cassis, violet, minerals, spices, flowers and exotic chocolate. The tannins are seductively sweet, yet the finish boasts terrific focus, not to mention outstanding persistence. In terms of sheer palate-saturating flavor and texture, this runs a close second to Fonseca among these 2003s. For long aging.
    SP92+92–94 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2005
    [Barrel tasting] This is big and juicy with loads of sweet and rich fruit as well as a racy tannin structure that impresses. Full-bodied, medium-sweet and long on the finish. I like this very much.

  11. Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Porto

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#55400

    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2019
    The NV Six Grapes Reserve Port is a blend of typical grapes aged in used wood for up to three years. It comes in with 114 grams per liter of residual sugar and was bottled with a bar-top cork in August 2018. In the Symington lineup this issue, this iconic brand is the polar opposite of the Dow. In comparison, the Dow is rounder and bigger but also a bit flatter and with less well-defined fruit, while this is more lifted and fresher, with better focus and more intensity on the finish. It has a beautiful expression of fruit as well. I’ve seen it available on the street for a lot less than that “suggested” release price, so don’t hesitate to look around.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2011
    A dry wine, firmly tannic, although also with acidity and black currant fruit. Spices and licorice add interest, while the tannins finish this attractive wine.
    SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2010
    Lots of sweet dark plum and sweet cherry flavors dominate, with plenty of milk chocolate. Clean and balanced on the straightforward finish. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.

  12. Graham’s Tawny Porto Aged 20 Years

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#26334

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2013
    A complex and full-bore tawny, with deep, intense flavors of orange cream, glazed apricot, baked peach and roasted pineapple that are balanced by concentrated chocolate and toffee notes. The bright finish is filled with spice and supported by fresh acidity. Drink now. 25,000 cases made.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 8/1/2006
    This is a hugely dry, burnt style, very concentrated. The licorice and bitter coffee flavors are dense, layered and well balanced with the acidity. A serious wine that demands attention.
    WS8686 pts. - Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2000
    Buttery, caramel flan flavors enrich this mature, toasty tawny. It finishes warm, with a silky custard softness rather than grip. Serve with a walnut or almond tart.

  13. Graham’s Vintage Porto

    1994 / 750 ml. | Item#20949

    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 1996
    In a port tasting, tasting Graham’s is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham’s. Anticipated maturity: 2002–2035.
    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2018
    The 1994 Graham’s Vintage Port, which incidentally carries quite noticeable sediment, as there is no fining or filtration, is beginning to show a little bricking on the rim. The bouquet is very harmonious and welcoming, featuring aromas of mulberry, roasted chestnut, pressed rose petals, autumn leaves and a hint of liquorice. The nose is not powerful; rather, it displays a brooding intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and lightly spiced with clove, pain d’épices and again, a scintilla of liquorice. Though it obviously has another 20 or 30 years in the tank, this mellow Graham’s is drinking beautifully now. Tasted at the Symington Tawny Port tasting at the Tower of London.
    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jan 31, 1998
    A big, tough, young vintage Port that’s closed and difficult to taste. Emits lovely aromas of chocolate, berry and plum, and is full-bodied with lots of sweet, fruit flavors and masses of velvety tannins. Long, sweet finish. Best after 2010.
    WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/15/1996
    Deep opaque black with a ruby rim. Full-bodied. Moderately tannic. Mild sweetness. Sandalwood, black fruit, to ruby rim. Dark brooding aromas lead into a firm extracted palate. Currently quite closed but it show extreme richness and depth of flavors. For long term cellaring.

  15. Quinta do Noval Vintage Porto

    2011 / 750 ml. | Item#37420

    SP9797 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2014
    Vibrant, with luscious yet elegant mineral-infused flavors of dark currant, ripe cherry, green fig and raspberry. Shows ample pepper notes, with the tannins offering plenty of muscle and grip on the long, silky finish. Complex and restrained. Best from 2022 through 2047.
    WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2013
    A powerful, concentrated wine, full of dark tannins, ripe fruit and rich texture. This is a wine based on a solid structure — very firm in character while still allowing the gorgeous fruits to express themselves. It’s obviously destined for long-term aging.
    ST9696 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - May/Jun 2014
    Deep, saturated ruby. Tight, high-pitched aromas of black fruits, minerals, spices, printer's ink and licorice, complicated by nutty and earthy nuances. Juicy, savory and youthfully imploded; not hugely opulent or sweet but a wine of great density and class, showing a pliant texture and no rough edges. This seemed even more intense after I swallowed it, showing a palate-drenching quality with no weightiness. Doesn’t have quite the dimension or floral complexity of the Nacional but a wine of great finesse, and built for decades of life.
    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2014
    The 2011 Quinta do Noval Vintage has a very intense, very refined bouquet with quite broody black fruit, briary, smoke and mineral. This is very fresh, similar to the barrel sample last April. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with well-judged acidity. This is utterly harmonious and refined, effortless even, with a pure blackberry and lightly spiced finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is an outstanding Noval that is only surpassed by the 2000, a Noval that does not deserve to be over-shadowed by its Nacional sibling. Drink 2018–2040. Tasted January 2014.
    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
    Christian Seely and António Agrellos worked together on renovating the Noval vineyard, after AXA Millésime purchased the historic property in 1993. They’ve since replanted 250 acres of vines, including the tall, whitewashed terraces that rise up to the quinta in the Vale de Mendiz. The touriga nacional planted on those terraces contributed to this seductively sweet 2011, its freshness layered in complex blue, purple and black fruit flavors. A bright herbal note and sour cherry tartness firm up the balance, enhancing the tannic structure while the round textures typical of Noval work seamlessly into the vintage character. This wine should be lovely at 20 years of age.
