1937 has produced some fantastic colheita ports. In my mind, this is the top colheita vintage from the twentieth century.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Being in a bottle of Colheita, it is entirely possible that the cork has rarely been in contact with the wine as the bottle might have spent its life standing up.

Having sampled a few of them, I agree.

I fully do agree. So far I did have Andresen, Niepoort, Kopke, Noval and Warre of 1937 this year. The Colheitas are so good that even if I blend them they turn out to taste extremely nice. On this tasting we had Pocas of 1964 and 1995, since they had no 37s in stock.
