Lovely bright red colour. Less VA than but the same heat as the Barros. Dominic Symington stated that he believed that these would both be the same wine.

1970 Kopke: an edge darker than the other ♦s (they being Barros, Kopke, Robertson’s Rebello Valente and Royal Oporto). Nosing of dark fruits. Taste initially too acidic, then soft and pleasant fading slowly to sweetness. Second-placed in this flight.
