A deep ruby colour, almost opaque. An intense, really complex aroma, with notes of black and red fruits, pepper, resin and pine needles, with attractive, well-integrated oak. It has good body and acidity, high quality tannins, black fruit flavours, a hint of cocoa and a long, elegant finish.

Decanter (DCT) : 91 Points (2014)
Youthful, uplifting and expressive, with a beautifully spicy nose of blackberry and cassis leading to a polished, svelte yet wonderfully concentrated palate underpinned by a zesty freshness. Lots still to come.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2014)
The 2014 Callabriga from Ferreirinha has been seen before, but this is worth a checkup. All sourced from Douro Superior, it is a blend of 70% Touriga Franca, 20% Touriga Nacional and 10% Tinta Roriz that comes in at 13.5% alcohol. It was aged in a mixture of used French (75%) and American (25%) oak for 12 to 18 months, depending on lot. Its structure is impressive and its depth reasonable in a tough year. The fruit remains dry and stern, though, lacking vivid flavor. Even so, it shows well and slowly opens a bit. This is nowhere near fully ready to drink, but you can approach it if you give it some air. It is a pretty serious red in a difficult year. The prices were not yet set. Prior estimates indicated that it would probably would be in the mid-$30 range. There were 113,000 bottles produced.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2010)
Part of a range of wines made to show the strengths of each wine region. This Douro wine certainly brings out the tough soil and the firm tannins. They go along with dark fruits, a mineral texture and the spice from wood aging. Drink this serious, dense wine from 2015.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2010)
Green olive, dried blackberry and rooibos tea notes mix easily in this supple and fresh style. Bright acidity lingers through the finish, which offers a racy mix of French roast and lemon tarragon flavors. Drink now through 2018. 3,475 cases made.

Reserva Especial is a magnificent, mature red wine from the Douro, classic in style, complex, rich and charismatic. It was created more than 50 years ago, and remains one of the main pillars upon which the reputation of Casa Ferreirinha rests. It has few peers.

Barca Velha represents the pinnacle of quality amongst Douro wine. Classic, intense, complex, elegant and rich, adjectives are inadequate to describe what is, and has been since its creation in 1952, the most celebrated Portuguese wine.
