TASTING NOTE: Ferreirinha's iconic Barca-Velha is the benchmark for all premium Portuguese dry table wines. Their Esteva is a worthy (and far more approachably priced) introduction to high-quality winemaking in the Douro. Fresh and juicy with ripe black fruit and light spice tones, it will pair superbly with grilled lamb. (Vintages panel, April 2019) Price $ 12.95
