This is a blend of five Colheita vintages, the oldest 1981, the youngest 1992. It has many of the characters of a single vintage Colheita with one exception: it is fresher, retaining a surprising and impressive amount of fruit. The wood aging has left the wine rich and spicy with just a hint of dryness. Drink this wine now.
