Tasting Notes

2003 tasting note year

This ’01 is a savory vintage style, emphasizing the resinous green scent of esteva while its fruit remains black and closed. The wine is reduced at the moment to its structure, to the heat of the Douro and the terse acidity out of schist. Time should bring the fruit out of hiding, though it’s likely to remain tight and elegant. Open it again in 12 to 15 years.

Score: 91/100

Richly textured, verging on opulent, this should be a relatively early-maturing Port. Complex and intriguing on the nose, where smoky minerally aromas evoke memories of sun-baked Douro schist, backed by plush blackberry fruit and a dash of maple syrup. Best from 2010. Editor's Choice.

Score: 92
