Rated 93 Points by Roy Hersh (ForTheLoveofPort.com): This was the 2nd ringer of the night, included more as an intro to this young beauty, not expecting anyone to mistake it for VP. Bottled in 2009. Orange-golden optic and a clear rim. Fruit filled nose of dried dates, peach marmalade, almond paste and mahogany. For such a young Colheita this is really expressive both aromatically and on the palate. Smooth and unctuous, delicate and delicious and light on its feet. Juicy nectarine, praline, lemon peel and pecan pie flavors are seductive and the mild candied nuttiness is balanced by exquisite acidity which keeps this in the off-dry realm. It finishes with great length and an exotic aftertaste of creme caramel and butterscotch. Young Colheita rarely gets any better than this.
