“The Most Exciting Wine Place on the Planet Today”

Wine Spectator’s Matt Kramer is raving about Portugal’s full-flavored reds—and Lobo e Falcão 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 by winemaker Joana Lopes. 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 2021 vintage received 90 points and a gold medal from Gilbert & Gaillard—and we’re certain the winning streak will continue for this 2022 release…

It’s equally impressive, showcasing all the same lush dark-fruit flavor as its previous award-winning vintages. It’ll dazzle 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.
