Description

A 10-Year- Old Tawny Port Wine from Quevedo. The colour is light and brown with hints of orange due to the long ageing in oak cask. The nose is filled with aromas of dried fruit, cinnamon and walnuts. On the palate the nutty flavours predominate, along with a touch of coffee and chocolate.

"Color light brown with hints of orange. Aroma very balanced with flavors of dried fruit, cinnamon and a certain floral note. Well defined aromas of wood, resulting from ageing in very old oak. On the palate light coffee beans. Nice lingering finish." - Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 90 / 100 points.

Quevedo is part of a new generation of small family wineries based in the Douro. For many years, these families were growing grapes, and making Port wine, for merchants based in Vila Nova de Gaia.

***Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 90/100 points***
The 10 Year Old Tawny Port, bottled in 2015 with 111 grams per liter of residual sugar, is a blend of Touriga Franca (25%), Tinta Roriz (25%), Touriga Nacional (5%), Tinta Barroca (20%), Tinto Cão (5%) and miscellaneous "others," aged in 650-liter casks for about 12 years. This is solid and weighty for its category--Oscar Quevedo said that his tawnies are always sourced from Douro Superior, lending them a bit more concentration and requiring a bit more aging. It is not showing the highest complexity level, however, notwithstanding the 12 years in cask, but there is plenty of spice and flavor on the finish. This is lively and appealing, lacking only a little complexity--but that is not primarily what you're going to get at the 10 Year level anyway. This is a pleasure to drink.
