    October 19, 2019 - Very different to the guimaraens 2012 I had. Lots of red fruit, graceful and feminine. Really rather nice now.

    February 17, 2017 - Good pretty straight forward vintage port. Needs some time to come together.

    December 3, 2016 - Good stuff. Not a regular vintage Port. Taylor Fladgate didn't declare a general vintage for Port wine in 2012. But it made this vintage for this particular quinta. That is what some of the Port makers do when they don't declare a general vintage, but the grapes from their special quintas are good. $50. Will probably not buy this vintage again. Still have a bottle of 2005.

    September 13, 2016 - Opaque ruby color, red fruits, strawberry, clove, herbs, extremely well balanced, fresh fruity aftertaste

    still very young, will need years to mature in the bottle

    tasted along with 2002 Quinta de Vargellas and 1994 vintage port

    score: 92+

    December 29, 2015 - FTLOP Tasting Evening (Sammamish, Washington): Mostly opaque with slight clearing right on the edges. Very subtle nose. Cranberry and a touch of boysenberry on the palate.
