Quinta do Vallado 20 Year Old Tawny Port 50cl
A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz aged in very old 600 litre oak casks and other old oak vats.
Very rich, combining dried fruit and cigar notes. The taste is very fresh, with liquorish on the mouth. It has a velvety finish.
" The 20 Year Old Tawny, bottled in 2013, was aged in very old oak casks and vats. It is an old-vines field blend with residual sugar of 119 grams per liter. Opening with a big, big rush of sugar, this shows more focus and far more complexity than I sensed on the first whiff. The finish is crisp and laced with a bit of brandy. This isn't big and thick, but it seems far richer than it is given the finish and the aromatics. The aromatics are very powerful for a 20. The remarkably concentrated flavors on the finish also seem often to exceed what many 20s deliver. This is quite an exceptional 20 Year from many perspectives, but that finish is particularly exceptional. There were a mere 1,000 bottles of 500ml produced.. " Mark Squires robertparker.com 93/100
