From the Critics:

  • "This is a really complex and classy bottle of Bual that is very pure and expressive, as it offers up a deep and vibrant nose of orange peel, golden raisins, heather, a beautifully complex and very salty base of soil, spiced meats and a lovely dollop of rancio as a topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a fine core of fruit, excellent focus and grip and a very long, bright and perfectly balanced finish where the sweetness is effortlessly carried by the ripe and very well-integrated acids. Lovely juice. I should note that I tasted this same wine from an earlier bottling back in 2011 and liked the wine very much at that time, but gave this more recent bottling tasted at the lodge a point higher score, which I think underscores how these wines get incrementally better with each subsequent bottling at the domaine. 2014-2100." (04/14) - 94 Pts John Gilman - View from the Cellar
  • "The 1968 D’Oliveiras Reserva Boal is a medium-bodied, elegant wine that features high-toned aromas and flavors, with subtle notes of smoke and tar adding complexity. This is an unusually understated showing for the 1968 Boal." - 93 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
