Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (NV)
The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a bar-top cork and 132 grams per liter of residual sugar. Gloriously fresh and completely alive, this adds an extra layer of depth and concentration of flavor to the 10 Year Old, of course, but that's not the main attraction here. This has all of Noval's typical grace and elegance while the complexity level is nicely above average. Then, its bright demeanor makes its fruit lifted and drives the medley of flavors home. It persists nicely, becoming something to contemplate as well as enjoy. This is a bit on the pricey side for a 20, at least judging from the list price, but it was also one of my favorites here. I don't want to be a broken record, but remember that aged tawnies should be drunk a bit cool. This was brilliant around 58-60 degrees Fahrenheit, boring around 72.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (NV)
Pure, fresh and minerally, this elegant tawny offers a rich mix of glazed apricot, dried citrus, peach and butterscotch flavors, wrapped in plenty of creamy notes.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 92 Points (NV)
A complex blend of fresh and mature wines, this 20-Year-Old glistens with scents of sweet William and deeper tones of apricot and nectarine fruit leather. Savory wood spice layers the fruit and lasts. The flavors have some bounce, an elasticity that keeps the wine fresh and transparent. (12/2009)

Quinta do Crasto Tinta Roriz 2016
Quinta do Crasto Tinta Roriz 2016
Released only in the finest years, this wine is made with 100% Tinta Roriz. Vivid and deep in color with intense ripe fruit aromas and notes of oak. Soft and round on the palate, very well balanced. A long and lingering finish.

The Vintage of 1985 was preceded by an exceptionally cold, wet Winter. Bud burst took place early in April and flowering around the end of May. The Summer was hot throughout and the harvest started…

Quinta de la Rosa White Port
Quinta de la Rosa White Port
A beautiful amber-honey color, it shows excellent fruit on the palate, tropical fruits - especially pineapple - but at the same time has a long dry finish, typical of the house style you find at La Rosa.
