Tasted December 2006:
More concentrated, reddish colour than the Cruzeiro. Very fresh on the nose, with dark cherries, dark chocolate, and meaty aromas. Very full.
Firm tasting, well bodied, dark and spicy. Again dark cherries and chocolate. Good freshness and good grip. Medium sweet. A smack-in-your-face style, or you could say, a port with an edge. Initially this is also a bit hot, but that blows off as well. Also gains more fruit with air. This port has plenty of potential to age further, but is very enjoyable now as well. 90 points.
