Winemaker Notes: 

The Dark Side of the Port. 
Opaque, thick, intensely red, vigorous, jovial, sanguine, the lifeblood of the Douro! A diamond to be polished by time in the comfort of the bottle.
 
A wine from one single harvest, representative of the growth cycle of one single exceptional year. After two years of refinement in wood, it is then bottled for a long life - 50 to 100 years.
 
A wine for special occasions, for commemorations and parties.
 
After it is taken out of the wine-cellar, it should be placed upright for a few hours to allow for the sediments to settle at the bottom. Two to four hours before being served it should be decanted to separate out the deposits and to allow the wine to breathe so that it can be served in all its splendour.
 
At the end of the party, by candlelight, with pine kernels, walnuts and cheese, the moments it creates are unique.
 

Reviews

Shows an essence of raspberry and wild plum, bursting with loads of fresh acidity. Very fresh and juicy, offering shadings of graphite that extend on the finish. A refined and elegant style that lingers with plenty of juiciness. Best from 2020 through 2050. 150 cases imported.  ~96WS

This delicately perfumed wine opens to reveal power combined with elegance. The wine has great ripeness—a soft texture on the surface masking the severe tannins at the center. ~95WE
