Tasting Notes

The fruit on the nose is very sweet the start of the palate fleshy and ripe. Firmer and fresher in the middle lots of bitter cherry, spice nutmeg and cloves slightly dry towards the back with cherry and plum stones but it fills out a bit on the finish. 2031-50

Score: 89Derek Smedley MW, DerekSmedleyMW.co.uk, May 2018

A deep purple colour in the glass, this offers pure black fruits and a little nutmeg on the nose. The palate is fresh, with ripe black fruits, bright acidity and silky, soft tannins suggesting this will be more approachable than most 2016 ports. The sweetness is tamed by notes of fruitcake, nutmeg and clove on a spicy, crunchy finish.

Score: 16+Farr Vintners, Farr Tasting, May 2018

Like the Quinta da Gricha, extremely dark blackish, blueish purple. So much more complex on the nose! A real fan of warm prune notes, with some elegance on the end. The fruit almost hides the considerable tannin but this is notably fresh. It may not be the longest living 2016 vintage port but is an absolute charmer and is so fresh and persistent. Drink 2027 - 2043.

Score: 17Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, May 2018

The wine is richly balanced, with sweet prune flavors as well as a core of dense tannins. A touch of perfume, nothing excessive, gives the wine extra complexity and is already attractive. Drink this wine from 2027.
