The 2016 Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend from typical grapes like Touriga Nacional Touriga Franca Tinta Roriz Tinto Co and Souso aged for five years in casks. This traditional LBV comes with a long cork and 92 grams of sugar. (There was no 2015 released.) Another super LBV from one of the region's best producers of it this is bursting with flavors leaning to strawberries and herbs. It adds fine concentration and reasonable tannic support. In power it is a bit understated this year. This should age well (they always do) and acquire complexity along the way which is all that is now missing.
