***91 Points- Wine Advocate (MS) April 2015***
The 2012 Vintage Port is a roughly equal blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz (30%), with Sousão (10%). It comes in at 88 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is a rather dry Port on paper and the only declared 2012 Vintage Port for those submitted by Sogevinus this issue. It was just a better vintage there, Sogevinus said. Frankly, as compared to the Kopke and the Burmester at least, also reviewed this issue, it is pretty close, depending on when you stop airing them out. I would have to agree that this is the best, however, after retasting them all the next day: First, it has the most weight, by a small margin. It has the best balance, too. Finally, and particularly, it is the most expressive and vibrant in the character of its fruit. Only the Kopke in the Sogevinus lineup really projects that demeanor, but this adds just a bit more concentration. After a sweet start, its lifted and well-integrated demeanor becomes more impressive, ending in a wonderfully juicy and subtly concentrated finish. If it is not quite the superstar of the group, it probably does have some bragging rights. It is pretty nice overall.
