    September 3, 2021 - Beautiful taste like a syrup but not overly sweet. Strong fruit flavors all throughout.

    August 30, 2021 - Very nice Porto! Fairly complex. A wine to contemplate. Went great with Fig Cake.

    August 14, 2021 - Half bottle. I don't drink much port at all so not able to judge this comparatively as well as others who drink port with some frequency. But this struck all of us tasting it as simply delicious, with no excess weight at all and restrained but complex fruit of real depth. Such good balance one hardly notices the sweetness. Lovely. The second bottle of two drunk over the last month - with consistent notes. Bought on release.

    July 31, 2021 - Wine Enthusiast had it right when this was released. A perfect bottle of Port.
    Cherries Jubilee, Dark Belgian Chocolate, Blackberry and a hint of Clove. Very Rich and Opulent, as well as silky smooth with all that alcohol. Just amazing what comes out of this bottle. Alas this is my last bottle. But I will remember it.

    July 23, 2021 - For The Love Of Port 16th Anniversary Tasting; 7/23/2021-7/24/2021 (Seattle, Washington): Extremely dark amber-purple in color. Cola and brown sugar notes on the nose, as well as some of the classic mint notes that Vargellas is known for. The palate shows some light red fruit but the excellent balance and complexity turn the mid-palate into waves of flavor that are well integrated and so very enjoyable. The long finish shows more of the great balance.
