We’ve championed Portugal’s rich, native reds for years. Now, we’re excited to bring you this luxurious Cabernet. The world’s (and our customers’) most-loved red reaches delicious levels of depth and complexity in the brilliant Portuguese sunshine, and we can’t wait for you to taste it …

Valoroso means ‘valiant’ – and this first-class Cab pays tribute to the ‘Comendadora’ title (aka ‘knighthood’) that fourth-generation proprietor Leonor Freitas was awarded by the Portuguese government for service to the wine industry. Her family’s estate was founded by Deonilde Freitas in 1920, and today its 210 hectares of vineyards produce some of the country’s finest wines. Look no further than this gorgeous example, crafted by Jaime Quendera – the man behind the ‘Best Red Wine in the World’ (Vinalies Internationales, 2008).

Boasting a silver medal from the prestigious Concours International des Cabernets, Valoroso bursts with ripe blackberry, plum, and spice aromas. The flavors follow on, with layers of rich dark fruit and black pepper. Smooth, round, and well-balanced, the palate gives way to a long, satisfying finish. A tasty match for beef, pork, or other hearty meat dishes.

Portugal’s popularity is on the rise, and thirsty fans will be racing to uncork this bold Cabernet. Get your share before we run out.
