Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Tinto douRosa is principally Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz, plus others in a field blend, all tank-aged. Although this is lacking a bit in concentration, it more than makes up for it in exuberant personality and purity of flavor. Plus, it has reasonable structure for its level as well. At the moment, it finishes just a bit tight, but it is easily approachable. In a summer red style, it is a best buy. Aromatic and completely delicious, this elegantly crafted wine is bright, lively and simply bursting with flavor. I just loved it. Cool this down a bit - low to mid-60sF - and you will, too. These are best served young and fresh, since the freshness is what they do best, but it should have the structure to last several years. It may be my favorite douRosa red yet. It is worth leaning up a bit for all that. Drink now-2018.  (Feb 2014)

Wine Spectator 89 points - A lively, focused red, with concentrated flavors of dark currant, red plum and dried raspberry. Dried mint and tarragon notes emerge midpalate, followed by a powerfully crisp finish filled with dark chocolate accents. Drink now. 448 cases imported. –KM  (Jun 30 2014)
