This is a great 1974 Colhieta from this family-run winery. The colour is still very intense, and the aromas are already where you would expect a Colheita of this age expect to be. 1974 is now over 40 years old but this wine is still really nice and very affordable.
This has amazing layers of aromas, nuts, crème brûlée, caramel, dates and apricot. A beautiful port – that you will combine with any food. But please enjoy it on it’s own.

Quinta de Vargellas Vintage Port
Medium intense color with slight orange tinge at the rim. Nose of wood, anise, deep berry notes, faint clove and lots more. Rich mouthfeel w/slight woodiness, rich dried fruits of cherry, blackberry, Plum and dates. Big in the mouth with a strong alcohol finish. this kept developing for at least 2 hours showing candied cherries later on. I was really surprised how big this was for being 40yrs old. Maybe not the most complex port but definitely delicious.
