Quinta do Pego Colheita Porto 2007

I tasted this 750 ml bottle at 20% at a family dinner. It has a estimated price in Denmark of 34 Euro.

This Quinta do Pego Colheita 2007 was bottled in 2016.

Deep orange red colour.

Light sweet fruits in the aroma with a dominating alcohol.

Soft tannin with a okay balance to the fruit. After taste has a good sweet raisin which the slowly fades out.

When first uncorked it is dominated by the alcohol and needs to breathe, no decanting, just needs to sit for half a day in bottle with level under the neck. That really works wonders on a colheita.

Overall rating 84 / 100

Medium clarity of this black to dark red port.

Forceful and suitable aroma, spicy in a good way and pure in the nose.

Medium bodied, yet dry and alive from tannin. Sweet fruit in the end.

Light body, dry but still within what is suitable, good fruit that is harmonic with a fine after taste of raisins. A good ready to drink wine that does a overall fine impression on balance.

Overall rating 88 / 100
