*** 90 Points, Roy Hersh - For the Love of Port ***
The 1992 Quevedo Colheita is an outstanding quality and value effort from this family-run estate. Oscar and Claudia Quevedo have produced a light brown port with hints of amber. On the palate there are nuts and a lovely light molasses note with coffe and spices The finish is long and lingering as befits a quality port such as this. Outstanding!
"This was a cask sample which Oscar Quevedo had sent to me by way of Vinologia and how often do you get to try 16 year old bottled cask samples of any wine? I can't begin to describe the color as we sat beneath the bridge on the Porto side, sipping and talking during the wee hours our first night in country (Andy/ Stewart/Roy). Nutty with a mahogany essence and a lovely light molasses note. Smooth, smoky and rich. Slightly hot and that was the only drawback, but obviously we did not get to decant this and maybe a pop and pour scenario hurt this slightly. I am looking forward to trying this again someday. Good length on the finish and overall, it was a nice young Colheita. 90 points. Roy Hersh, September 2008
