Annie Krebiehl reports on the Quinta Vintage Port tasting hosted in London by Paul and Johnny Symington, confirming that the wines showed the variations in terroir across the Douro and were "a thoughtful reminder that we are apt to miss a lot by just concentrating on the ‘finest’ vintages or the highest scores.
