"http://www.winereviewonline.com/wine_reviews.cfm?nCountryID=6&archives=1 -- This wine from Portugal's awesome Douro Valley is as lovely as it is impressive, which is really saying something. Power is easy to come by in this region, but complexity and elegance remain quite rare for dry table wines. However, even it the torrid 2003 vintage, this wine shows admirably restrained oak and very fine, berry and red cherry fruit that is ripe but not remotely raisiny or rough. Hats off to whomever made the tastefully picking and maceration decisions that led to this delicious result. 90 Michael Franz Sep 26, 2006"
