*** 92 Points Mark Squires - Wine Advocate ***
Scoring an outstanding 92 Points Oscar and Claudia Quevedo have produced a gem of a 1996 Colhieta. The nose offers secondary nuances including caramel apple, maple, toffee, and pralines. On the palate it delivers lots of subtlety, is blessed with plenty of acidity and the finish is long and infused with nuts and caramelised flavours.
"The 1996 Colheita Port is a tawny bottled in 2013 with 114 grams per liter of residual sugar. Mostly a blend of the big three (Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz), this has 114 grams per liter of residual sugar. Showing fine focus and some grip on the finish, this lingers impressively for what is basically a 20 Year Tawny. Oscar Quevedo told me that he liked full bodied Colheitas--this certainly seems to be on the substantial side. The brandy is a bit prominent, but it doesn't distract too much from that wonderful finish, with tension and power." Mark Squires - Wine Advocate.
