de Cima 2007;
Wine Spectator, april 2010,
Offers the essence of blueberry and raspberry, supported by a firm structure,
with mineral and smoke. Medium-grained tannins fill the long, firm finish,
with notes of black olive. Syrah, Aragonês, Cabernet Sauvignon,
Petit Verdot and Touriga Nacional. Drink now through 2014. 11.390 cases
made. – K.M.
Robert Parker, december 2009
The 2007 TINTO, merely labeled “Cortes de Cima,” is the mid-priced entrant
in the lineup, a blend this year of Aragonez, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon,
Touriga Nacional and Petit Verdot aged for 12 months in barrel. If you
want to see what happens to the Chamine reviewed this issue with more
depth, concentration and structure…voila. This is nicely focused, with
some concentration and intensity of flavor and grip on the finish. It
has a modern, New World style, but turns a little austere and crisp on
the finish, too. If you like the style—fruit forward and flavorful—this
is a very good vintage for this wine. The winery recommends drinking by
2014—that sounds about right, but I think it should hold a bit longer,
even if not at peak. Drink now-2016.
Wine Enthusiast, 15 december 2009
The estate blend from Cortes de Cima is an elegant, lightly structured
wine. It has fine fruit flavors, with an attractive strawberry juice sweetness
that balances well with the core of dry tannins. The wine finishes softly,
with sweet juicy acidity. - R.V.

‘With its toasty, ripe red fruit, this wine is seriously sumptuous. Watch
out for well-integrated oak, layers of spicy fruit and a long finish.’

American Carrie Jorgensen went to Portugal in 1988, a century after her
great-grand-father had migrated from that country to the United States.
She and her Danish Husband, Hans Jorgensen, established a winery that
today encompasses more than 200 acres. All the grapes for this 100 percent
Touriga Nacional bottling are sourced from estate vineyards, and the wine
was aged for nine months in new French oak. 12,062 cases made.
Vinum, april 2006
Der gebürtige Däne Hans Joergensen ist Eigentümer dieses
aufstrebenden Gutes. Seine Top-Cuvée setzt sich aus Aragonez, Trincadeira
und Touriga Nacional sowie Syrah zusammen. In bouquet viel Brombeere;
sanfte Frucht, elegant, viel Spiel, feinmaschig. Rechtlich gehört
der Wein wegen seiner untypischen Spaliererziehung zur Kategorie Landwein.
2006 bis 2012.

‘Warm and spicy with a peppery nose, this has plenty of character. Medium
to full-bodied in structure, with ripe, sweet fruit and a refreshing tang
on the finish. ‘
Wine Enthusiast 3/2004
'Jammy blackberries blend with vanilla-pintas
cented oak in this rather New World-styled wine. It´s supple and
fully ripe, with smooth tannins and very berry fruit. Might pass for a
Zin in a blind tasting. Drink now-2008.' -
