Fresh plum scents meld with the sappy green-herb character of esteva to distinguish this wine as a classical Cima Corgo Port. The beauty of that aroma matches the textural give of the tannin, the wine’s tight, restrained power in service to the length of its flavor—the bright blue fruit, dark schist and herbal savor last on and on. A graceful, accommodating Porto, one to enjoy 12 to 15 years from the vintage.

A fruity, big, ripe wine, its tannins enveloped in the forward fruit. There is sweetness from black figs and berries, while red berries give acidity.

Refined and elegant, with an inky color, a raspberry aroma and ripe dark fruit flavors. Pepper and chocolate power the finish. Best from 2013 through 2016.
