S.J Single Quinta Vintage Port 2012
Style - Sweet
The 2012 Vintage Port 'S.J' (spelled just that way on the label; a reference to the Quinta, São José) is an old vines field blend (80-years-old) made up of principally Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão. About half of the juice was aged for approximately 24 months in very old French casks; the rest in stainless steel. Inky black, primary and fresh, this is not a Port with a lot of concentration or pure power, but it has enough of everything. In particular, it becomes rather more intense with a few days in the fridge, showing off more power than it initially seemed to have. Its ability to taste great and be remarkably fresh is what really makes it a winner. There is a bit of herbs, a touch of resin and garrigue as a flavor medley. You can drink this relatively young, or hold it. The style makes it more or less accessible, but it certainly has plenty of room to improve in the cellar over the next decade or more. Drink Date: 2020-2050. Score - 91. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, Dec. 30, 2015)
