My 4th spin with this vintage and it's holding steady, if a little more reserved than it was in youth. The 16s were super open and drinkable young but have added more of what you'd expect in it's youth, more structure, more density, just more serious. Decant if having right away. If you can plan it, splash decant briefly and rebottle it with the cork open for 24 hours.

Deep Ruby with pronounced aromas of berry fruits, spice and floral notes, a blend of 37% Touriga Nacional, 42% Touriga Franca and various others. On the palate intense flavors of plum, licorice and blackberry flavors, well balanced with lively acidity, full-bodied, big and well structured. Long finish, smooth tannins ending with cacao and rich sweet fruit tones. Very nice! Keep this in the cellar for another decade!

Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe fruit structure, sweet and luxurious, still is a big port but with finesse. On the palate flavors of ripe cherry, currants and jammy tones, well balanced. Fine tannins, long and elegant finish ending with rich fruit and nutty character. Will still continue to age. Tasting Sample.

1980 and still a baby. Concentrated flavors typical to vintage port. Plum, chocolate etc…

Super young. Vibrant ruby color. Exceptional and between 7 people the half bottle was gone in no time yet the perfect amount after a lights-out dinner
