Garnet colour, with a bright nose of pomegranate, strawberries and cherries. Cherry-vanilla flovour that lingers in the finish.

Tasting notes:
Still very dark in colour. Black berry, mulberry, dark cherry and blueberry in the nose. Medium body. Still some soft tannins. Rather mature but will improve a lot. Easy to drink and like with an attractive and quite long finish.

Kopke Port is the oldest port house. Established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League, the House of Kopke is the eldest Porto wine export firm. Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Review:
Garnet color, with a bright nose of pomegranate, strawberries and cherries. Cherry-vanilla flavour that lingers in the finish.

Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer. Lighter and more delicate than vintage ports, the colheita ports are immediately understandable and enjoyable to the novice port drinker and an ongoing pleasure to the experienced.
