Quinta de Vargellas 2001 is being offered by Tesco at £153 per case. It seems a good price. what do you think of the port?


Hi Patricia, Naturally we cannot comment on a wine made by one of our competitors!   We suggest you search for tasting notes on the websites of top wine publications such as Decanter or Wine Spectator, or look at our Internet Resources page for a list of the sites and critics that feature Port.  Another good option is to review the Tasting Note databases in two on-line chat forums about port:  For the Love of Port (run by Roy Hersh, a recognised critic and expert on Port and Madeira) or The Port Forum.  Both of these sites will have many tasting notes from keen and knowledgeable amateurs.  You can read an overview of conditions for the 2001 vintage here on The Vintage Port Site.
