      ​The 2016 Vintage Porto is mostly an equal blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with various others comprising the last 20% of the juice. It comes in with 95 grams of residual sugar. This was in bottle about two months when tasted. Dark in colour, with fine and expressive fruit, this shows intensity of flavour more than pure power. The fruit demonstrates nice lift as it opens with air. As with the Offley, this is a very nice success in this vintage, showing me fine fruit and reasonable structure. The concentration is good too, but is not quite as impressive as the first two components. It is still excellent overall, the most exuberant of the three Sogrape Portos. We'll se how it ages and develops. For the moment, it is worth leaning up.

      Cask sample. 40% Touriga Franca, 40% Touriga Nacional, 10% Tinta Roriz, 5% Tinta Cão, 5% Sousão. Plum, violet and chocolate with a hint of musky grape aromas too. Pashmina smoothness. Utter pleasur to taste - the fruit is just so pristine, yet there is spice and earthiness and even a bit of ​savoury umami flavour too - mushroom and soy, perhaps. Superb. (RH) 20% Drink 2021-2046.

      Densely packed, with baker’s chocolate up front, followed by muscular black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Shows brambly grip, with flashes of apple wood and Turkish coffee. Best from 2035 through 2055.

      This is a ripe and generous wine, with tannins that are well integrated into the powerfull black fruit core. It is rich in a black plum flavour that's cut by fine acidity. Complex, balanced and full of long-term potential, drink this impressive wine from 2029.​

      "​Closed and dense on the nose, then the palate has a touch of tar. Muscular and still tight knit with the powerful spicy, dry tannins that have become the hallmark of Sandeman in recent vintages. Made from 40% of both Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca with support from Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Sousão. Serious Port – not as overwhelmingly extracted as some previous years and well balanced for a long future."
