2015 Quinta Da Corte Late Bottle Vintage Port

90 pts Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend aged for 48 months in old Portuguese vats. It was bottled in April 2019, unfiltered, with 84 grams of sugar and a bar-top cork. Powerful and intense, this opens up with concentrated, slightly jammy fruit supported by a serious backbone. If I tasted this blind, I might have assumed this tightly wound LBV was a Vintage Port, at least a modest one. The fruit is rich and expressive. The wine is nowhere near peak. Given its potential for aging and development, I'm surprised it does not have a normal, long cork. Barring cork issues, it should age well. The only remaining question is whether it will develop well. We'll be a bit conservative just now. There were 8,500 bottles produced. Not imported, this runs around 23 euros in Portugal."
