A vintage with an intense color and ink with notes of ripe fruit and an optimum acidity and freshness. Tannins intense but elegant, that balance the freshness of the mouth. The nose opens gradually, showing the set of vegetable scents, herbs.
Store and Serve Advices:
Should be opened two hours before serving and decanted. Serve between 17º and 18º C. Store the bottle on its side, in a cool, dry and dark place.
Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.
