There is still plenty of fresh, youthful fruit here. Medium ruby-red, with an intense floral and berry nose, medium-bodied, with rich, sweet fruit flavors, medium tannins and a lingering finish. Very good fruit. (Web Only—1998)
Deep, vibrant ruby with very pale rim. Big, broad, rich nose – quite burly and autumnal. More powerful than the 1963 – with more obvious alcohol. Excellent balance again but with sweet, very direct attack. Dry, energetic finish. This is all power and bounce rather than the subtlety of the 1963. Very sweet with just a hint of something metallic. Rumbustiously sweet. Mainly from Bom Retiro in the Rio Torto. This was originally underrated and sells for much less than the 1963. Has apparently been on a plateau for years so I may well be under-estimating its longevity. (18.5/20 points)
This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop, and while they never quite have the voluptuous richness of a Dow, Graham, or Fonseca, they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style.
