Quinta do Portal 2005 $19

Unfiltered; bottled 2009. The fine, exotic nose is accented by violets, spice, mocha, raisin, and black cherry. Rich as crude oil, but not jammy, the palate has a captivating concentration of fruit that’s impressive for an LBV. So massive that it’s almost intimidating, yet elegant to the core thanks to round, polished tannins and prolific acidity, it shows both power and class with an everlasting finish—the stuff dreams are made of. Possibly the finest young LBV I’ve ever opened. Be sure to decant it for at least four to six hours; it will drink better by the second or third day, if not the second week, after opening. Stick a case in the cellar for a good decade or two.
