1887 Constantino

There was definitely no discussion about the provenance of this port and the Colheita 1896, as these wines never left the Almeida/ Roquette cellars:

Red and brown in color, appeared to be much younger than expected. The nose revealed coffee, honey and malty notes. Very vital on the palate, fresh with lots of malt and mint. Medium aftertaste with herbs in the background. Extremely surprising. 18
