A classic vintage for Port; a cooler growing season means fruit is less assertively dried or jammy. Notes of espresso, violets and black currant are unavoidable ont he palate and nose. Made exclusively from one harvest at the house's Qunita, or small vineyard in the Rio Torto. Following 2 years in oak, the wine is transfered unfiltered to bottle, where it can mature for decades. It is during this long bottle ageing that the young wine becomes Vintage Port.


Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...the finest young vintage I have tasted from this fine property. The bouquet is very, very floral and compelling, as it jumps from the glass in a blend of violets, black cherries, plums, dark chocolate, very gentle black pepper notes and a nice base of soil... full-bodied, deep and very suave, with an early silkiness that is very appealing, coupled to ripe, fine-grained tannins and superb length and grip on the complex finish... this is clearly the sleeper Port of the vintage of the examples that I have tasted. It should offer remarkable value. 2025-2100. (Jul/Aug 2009)
