Firm and fleshy, with ripe black cherry, vanilla and coffee aromas and flavors. Shows a definite grip of tannin and alcohol on the finish, but in balance. A chewy wine that will need to sort itself out.
I thought this was a staggering example of port. Dow's style tends to be more backward, but this opaque black/purple-colored wine reveals a huge, powerful, intense palate, with gobs of flesh and viscous fruit. There is considerable tannin in the finish. It is a massive port with no indication of excessive alcohol in the finish. A magnificent young, dry-styled vintage port that just goes on and on in the mouth, it should last for 20-30 years. The single Quinta ports are just as spectacular as any vintage port I tasted from 1983 or 1985. (RP)
