This is a limited-production colheita Port made from six selected barrels. It has a wonderful golden character, showing a series of woody flavors from the long barrel aging, while keeping a surprising amount of fruit. The spirit and the alcohol are almost irrelevant in this gorgeous wine that is absolutely ready to drink.
