Barros Colheita Port 1978 - This is an old Tawny Port from a single year, matured in cask for at least 8 years before bottling. Intense amber colour, and a complex but very attractive bouquet with prominent dried fruit aromas, combined with spicy notes. Lovely balance between power and finesse with a silky texture and beautifully sustained flavours.
