This single quinta Vintage Port comes from a site in the hot, steep Rio Torto valley more often associated with the producer's 20-year-old tawnies. It's a smoothly ripe wine with dry tannins and black fruit, contrasted with a sweeter jammy character and well-integrated spirit. It will age for many years and will be best from 2025.
