Release Notes

The colour of this great Vintage is intense and it has rich and concentrated flavours with a most distinctive flowery bouquet.  It has great potential for long maturation.  The lotes from the Rio Torto provided some of the finest wines for the Vintage blend, in particular the wines from Quinta da Madalena, which make up the main part of this Vintage.

Alcohol by volume v/v (20º C): 20%

Tasting Notes

Excellent deep colour, with some evolution on the rim. Rich aromas of dark crushed berries, combined with floral hints. Succulent and voluptuous palate dominated by lots of fruit, pepper and black cherry flavours.  Elegant and harmonious finish. Good potential for additional ageing.

Attractive colour; distinctive Pontefract cakes nose, more refined than Gould [Campbell].  A complete, lovely wine.  2004-2020.

Score: 5 Stars

1996 tasting note year

An under-rated producer, Smith-Woodhouse has turned out a port with an impressively saturated dark ruby/purple color.  This powerful port is moderately sweet, forward, rich, and full-bodied, with nicely integrated alcohol and tannin.  While it is not one of the vintage's blockbusters, it should be ready to drink in 3-5 years and keep for 15-20.  Anticipated maturity: 1999-2018.

Score: 90/100
