"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.
