Quinta do Castelinho Porto Vintage 1999

Castelinho Vinhos (Portugal)

Porto (Douro)
Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Francesa
Fortified Wine Fortified Wine Score: ✧✧✧✧

Porto (Douro) The wine shows a ruby red color and nuances of purplish red, little transparency. The nose reveals pleasing aromas of black berried fruit such as black cherry, cherry macerated in alcohol, blueberry and blackberry as well as an intense and very pleasing aroma of violet followed by hints of vanilla. The mouth denotes good balance, intense, full bodied and good correspondence to the nose, good tannins well balanced by alcohol and good roundness. The finish is persistent with clean and pleasing hints of violet and black cherry. A very good Port which will certainly improve with some more bottle aging.

Alcohol: 20%
