“The Most Exciting Wine Place on the Planet Today”

Wine Spectator’s Matt Kramer is raving about Portugal’s full-flavored reds—and this exciting exclusive will show you why. It’s from Tejo, a remote, interior region of Portugal. Here you’ll find a land untouched by modern times, all-but overlooked by the rest of the wine world…for the time being. We’ve been swooping down on rich pickings here for years, bringing you remarkable wines that over-deliver on flavor and value.

A perennial best-seller, this one—a blend of international Syrah and local stars Alicante Bouschet and Castelão—was crafted at José Lobo de Vasconcelos’ 17th-century estate. The property once served as the king of Portugal’s falconry, and José’s family (whose surname means ‘wolf’) were the caretakers there. Lobo e Falcão (‘Wolf and Falcon’) is a tribute to them, as they would keep special barrels of their wine tucked away for the king when he stopped by for a visit.

Here’s Wine Enthusiast’s Roger Voss on a previous release, which scooped the magazine’s Best Buy rating: “rich, immediately fruity character and dense color. Structure and concentration leave room for an elegant texture. Blackberry juiciness shines at the end.”

The new 2021 release is equally impressive—boasting 90 points and a gold medal from Gilbert & Gaillard plus all the same lush dark-fruit flavor. It’ll shine alongside hearty foods like beef tenderloin, thick-cut pork chops, steaks, burgers and more.

Taste why Portugal’s reds are all the rage—and let us know what you think once you’ve cracked open this flavor-packed star.
