"Amazingly the nose on this is the most complex of the night, on the palate killer (in a good way) acids, rosemary and mint, toffee, espresso, bitter almond, orange rind, an intense lingering sweetness, continually unfolds…like unfolding origami! A brilliant expression of a Colheita, so incredibly strong for a 112 year old wine…as strong as many wines 40 years younger, another nearly perfect wine." Roy Hersh, ForTheLoveOfPort.com, May 2012
Provenance: The Cordonnier Cellar
Notes: Lightly scuffed wax capsule. "Engarrafado 1972."
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $850
