In such a great place with the classic Vesuvio vinosity, savory and spice elements in a very dry style single Quinta Port. Want do know what older Port tastes like and why it's so great, this makes a great case for just that!

Still very youthful. Big and powerful, but finessed and extremely enjoyable.

If you ever wanted to try a mature Port from a great producer this is in a great place from drinking enjoyment. The deep opaque core has given way to a deep crimson and brick edge to the color at the rim.
In a terrific place right now as the nose and the palate are open, complex and deeply pleasing in flavor and aroma. With mostly mature tertiary characteristics of dried fruits, sweet tobacco, a little bitter cacao and mellow spices with a beam of minerality from the heart of the schist terroir of this unbelievable property.
