Kopke Colheita Aged Tawny Port 1978

"It is very graceful for its age, finishing with a wave of sweetness, fruit and sugar. Emphasizing the caramel more than the molasses, this is irresistibly delicious, but it becomes more complex and puts on weight as it airs and warms. The wine shows off its power and hints of Brandy on the rather tense finish, too. Overall, this is a beauty that becomes more impressive the longer you sit with it. Then, you realize that its balance is simply perfect, yet it stands out in most every category. This is very fine and the price is pretty nice for the age and the quality." 94 points Mark Squires Wine Advocate

"Lovely spicy depth here with some fudge and herb notes. Warm and cedary with attractive softness, and hints of damp earth, but in a very nice way" 95 pts Jaime Goode Wineanorak.

"Not one of the generally declared vintages for Port, this year produced some ripe, sweet single quinta vintages. It also was a good year for rich, sweet tawnies. This is ripe, toffee-like in character packed with ripe raisin and sultana flavors. It is a luxurious wine, of course ready to drink." 94 points Wine Enthusiast

"Crisp and spicy, with dried citrus, maple and ginger flavors, supported by fresh acidity. White chocolate and cardamom notes flood the tangy finish." 92 points Wine Spectator

Kopke is one of the oldest Port houses in the Douro dating back to 1638 and offers an amazing selection of aged tawny ports. It's a unique opportunity to experience history in a bottle.
