Natalie's Score: 92/100

This lovely fortified dessert wine was estate bottled in 2007. It was aged 10 years before being released from the winery, much like 10-Year-Old Tawy Ports are, and it too does not require decanting as there is not sediment. However, a Colheita Port differs from a Tawny in that a Colheita is made from the grapes grown in a single vineyard, rather than a blend of several vineyards. This offers aromas of black fruit, vanilla spice, coffee and chocolate. A rich, luxurious port with layers of toffee, nuts and caramel on the finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
