External Reviews for Quinta da Bacalhoa Cabernet Sauvignon
This is one of Portugal's most recognizable wines. It's mostly Cabernet Sauvingnon (90%) and Merlot. It's pure cassis on the palate, full-bodied with a touch of spice. Incredibly well-made and sophisticated.
The finest Cabernet produced in Portugal, eerily reminiscent of top Pauillac; dark, dense and concentrated, with tons of currant, cassis, plum, cedar, spice, smoke and vanilla flavors; outstanding structure; built for the long haul, but delicious today.
The beautiful vineyard of Quinta da Bacalhoa was established along with the palace in the 15th century. It was replanted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot by American owners in the 1970’s. This 2000 vintage is as good as ever, rich and tannic, with dark fruits and intensity along with wood flavors. A great wine for short-term aging; it is very drinkable already.
