From a year in which only single quinta vintage Ports were produced, this is a hugely concentrated toffee and dried fruit wine. It is rich with sweetness and a dense texture that is balancing complex flavors against the drier wood-aging flavors. It has been bottled just at the right stage of its development, rich and dense. Drink this beautiful wine now.
