Wine Advocate 90 points - This sample was actually a finished wine. The 2011 Ferreira is a blend of 45% Touriga Franca, 40% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Roriz and 5% Sousao, all aged in large oak wooden vats in Vila Nova de Gaia before bottling in April 2011. It has a powerful nose of baked black cherries, incense and melted dark chocolate that is very open and welcoming. The palate is full-bodied and understated on the entry, but do not be deceived, for there is a second wave of spicy, damson fruit laced with white pepper and even Szechuan pepper towards the finish. I am just seeking a little more persistency, although that may develop with bottle age. Tasted May 2013.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 97 points - This hugely rich yet approachable wine shows power and boldness. All the elements are there, linked by firm tannins and freshness from berry acidity.  (Nov 2013)

Wine Spectator 93 points - A chiseled, floral style, with notes of violet to the lively raspberry, plum and black fig flavors. Very fresh and juicy, showing peppery and sanguine accents on the elegant, crisp finish. Best from 2040 through 2060.K.M. (Dec 11 2013)
