Tasting Notes

A limpid purple hue. The nose is very lifted and pure with crème de cassis, blackberry, a touch of earth/sous-bois and a hint of leather. Nice lift and vigour. The palate is medium-bodied, velvety on the entry and then firms up towards a more masculine finish with blackberry, spice, a touch of eau-de-vie and cassis. Just a little short towards the finish and not as expressive or refined as the Romaneira, but still very fine.

Score: 91Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2009

This is a wonderfully focused and intense young Vintage Port, with flowers, crushed berries and cherry. Full-bodied and very sweet, with ripe berry and jam flavors. Long and powerful. Best after 2016. 1,000 cases made. -JS

Score: 90James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2010

Violet and crushed berries on the nose, with currant. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with a solid core of ripe fruit and chewy tannins that are polished and refined.

Score: 90/93James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, April 2007

Bright ruby. High-pitched, very ripe aromas of blackberry, spicecake, licorice pastille and rose petal, with a whiff of brandy. Impressively tactile and concentrated, with a three-dimensional texture to the rich flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Distinctly high-pitched, even a bit youthfully aggressive, but wonderfully pure wine. Finishes broad and long, with lovely sweetness and impressive grip. A superb showing, and a very good value in the context of vintage port.
