Potentially one of the most compelling wines of the vintage, this inky black/purple-colored 2000 exhibits notes of scorched earth, melted asphalt, blackberry liqueur, and a pungent, penetrating intensity that reverberates in the mouth as well as the head. Full-bodied, massive, and concentrated, with a 45-second finish, this thrilling effort should drink well between 2010-2035. (RP)
Saturated black-ruby. Superripe but vibrant aromas of crystallized black fruits, tar and mossy earth. Thick, dense, seamless and very young, with complex notes of espresso, bitter chocolate and earth. A rather powerful wine with chewy extract. Slightly exotic but firm-edged on the long, slow-mounting finish, which features compelling sweetness and late notes of mocha and pipe tobacco. (ST)
Incredibly juicy and fruit-filled, with mixed berries leading the charge, backed by cocoa, chocolate and dried spices. It’s deceptively easy to drink now, but the structure should become more obvious in time. Côrte-Real considers it “one of the best vintages ever made.” Worth cellaring some for 50 years to see how it compares with the ’27 and ’55. Hold. (JC)
Nicely made. Very subtle aromas of crushed berries, roses and lavender. Full-bodied, lightly sweet, with big juicy tannins and a long fruity finish. (JS)
The 2000 vintage created luscious Port wines, this one supple and heady with ripe plum fruit pressed up against a solid wall of tannins. The fruit blasts through the tannins and lasts, the wine still youthfully oaky and floral, needing another ten years to come into its own.
