Recently we've heard more and more of our guests asking for more high-end Portuguese wines.

We were happy to hear this, because though our Portuguese wine section offers some great values, there are some really phenomenal wines being made at the high end as well!

Quinto do Vallado is certainly one of these, heralded by many as the "new legacy of Douro." Produced by a family that's been making wine in the Douro Valley for six generations, their Reserva Red is made largely from 60+ year-old vines, and just received a 96 point score from the Wine Spectator.

Not often do we see a 96 point wine with a $47.98 price tag ... thank you Portugal!

Wine Spectator 96 points
Rich, powerful and finely crafted, with layers of concentrated red plum, currant, blueberry and kirsch flavors. Silky tannins knit it seamlessly together. The elegant and refined finish is filled with mineral, smoke and spice. Drink now through 2016. 2,056 cases made.–KM
