My price-value-winner of the evening. I had this VP last three months ago in Vila Nova de Gaia together with the Dows and the Vesuvio of the same year. You can only see that this is not a fresh Vintage Port because the reflections in the colour are missing. The structure is amazing, very intensive nose from dried plums and raisins, some red berries. The palate is very deep and intense, although there needs to be some integrative work done. It is not ready at all. This wine will need decades to reach its full maturity.
