Warm, soft-edged and generally open, with a core of steeped plum, blackberry preserve and blueberry reduction flavors leading the way, backed by hints of ganache and licorice root on the finish that add a grippier feel. More bass than treble, but well-packed.

This is a beautiful, luscious wine. It has all the characteristics of a fine Vintage from this producer, with richness and opulence masking powerful tannins.

Very dark, opaque purple. The initially reticent nose shows dark berries, violet, and a hint of balsamic. Very flavorful with jammy black raspberry fruit enhanced by notes of bergamon, balsamic and bitter chocolate. This is a particularly vibrant, velvety Port from the 2017 vintage with racy acidity and generous, powdery tannins and an outstanding, extracted, spiced finish.

Deep violet black. The 2018 Guimaraens is seductively aromatic with scents of black plum, dark cherries, and Medjool dates that are picked up on the palate and complemented by notes of espresso, cloves and black tea. There’s admirable purity, a lush texture, a vigorous, long finish, and supple tannins that suggest earlier drinking than many Ports from this vintage.
