It's a red wine from Alentejo and its called Rúbrica. This wine created by winemaker Luís Duarte was considered the second best wine in 2013 for the American magazine Wine Enthusiast.
Wine Enthusiast critics suggest to hold for 6–7 years or more to drink the wine and acclaim its "great richness from the black plum fruits, and a spicy, herbal character that adds complexity" to the wine. Portugal got more 5 wines in the list: the Alentejo red Mouchão in the 13th place, Quinta do Cardo Selecção do Enólogo (from Beira Interior) in the 20th place and the Douro red Águia Moura em Vinhas Velhas Reserva in the 26th place. The 2011 Vintage Ports from Quinta Vale Meão achieved the 40th position and Ferreira got the 56th place. This year, Wine Enthusiast’s global tasting panel reviewed more than 16,500 wines, in every style and at every price point imaginable.
