2016 Pintas

3,500 bottles produced, available in the UK through Corney & Barrow. Deep red colour with a very narrow rim. Effusive fruit on the nose, very powerful and dominating. On the palate this has a smooth texture with sweet strawberry fruit and delicious charcoal tannins, the tannins deliver a great dark chocolate finish that has great length. This is another big port, but is more balanced and refined than the Passadouro. 90-92/100. Tasted 24-Sep-18.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
