The 1957 Colheita Tawny Port was seen before, but it's worth revisiting in the USA, since it's a great wine. This is also the new 2015 bottling. It has 127 grams per litre of residual sugar. It is stunning how youthful this is. Lush and rich on opening, it has mature flavours that emerge, easily demonstrating the complexity and concentrated aromatics one expects. Gripping on the finish, this delivers fruit flavour and seems to linger indefinitely. When I first saw this, it was tasted next to even more brilliant Colheitas and a bit overshadowed. On its own, it is even more stunning. It was pretty fine next to some other greats here as well.
Porto Kopke Colheita 1957 shows deep color, aromatics and vivacity of the legendary 1900. An exceptionally well-balanced tawny! Gold Medal, III Concurso Internacional da Cidade do Porto 96 pts. Roy Hersh, For the Love of Port.
