Description

The 2016 Quevedo Vintage Port Wine is a deep dark ruby with violet undertones, and the nose offers lush plum, grape and blueberry aromas supported by rich spice notes, a lovely combination of freshness and intensity. On the palate dense, powerful fruit and rich tannins are well balanced, robust and compact, just what you want for a classic Vintage Port.

Notes from Quevedo: "At this point it seems every year is an “atypical” year for weather in the Douro, and 2016 gave us challenges different from 2015’s atypical pattern. The winter months were warmer than usual and January and February wetter by far than the historical averages. The spring months (March – May) were cooler than normal but also extremely rainy. Then came a hot dry summer, and a perfect warm and dry harvest period which began mid-late September, after a welcome light rainfall that gave the grapes that last bit of freshness before harvest."

The 2016 Vintage Port blend rather unusually includes grapes from Quinta das Mós. With over a kilometer of river frontage, this low, north-facing quinta is usually our driest and first to harvest, but it seems 2016’s unusual weather patterns suited it well and the grapes matured to Vintage greatness.

***17.5/20 Points JancisRobinson.com***
Wow – such an onslaught of floral perfume! So very impressive. Juicy and expressive with bursts of violet, chocolate, menthol, cherry and spice. Fibrous tannins, bright acid, long and powerful to finish. Such a gregarious, extrovert style. (RH)Richard Hemming MW.

This is a wine that is already so well balanced while also having an intense structured future. It is powered by tannins and by a dark concentration of its structure and its powerful black fruits. Drink this wine from 2028. Roger Voss- Wine Enthusiast Magazine
