About the Winery:
Excellent deep color, with some evolution on the rim. Rich aromas of dark crushed berries, combined with floral hints. Succulent and voluptuous palate dominated by lots of fruit, pepper and black cherry flavors. Elegant and harmonious finish. Good potential for additional ageing.

THE VITICULTURAL YEAR
After a number of exceptionally dry years, the very wet winter of 1993/4 came as a great relief and replaced valuable water reserves. March and April were beautifully warm, rapidly bringing on the development of the vines. The weather for the remainder of spring and summer was ideal with the vines developing under perfect conditions. The Vintage started on the 29th September with the grapes in better condition than had been seen for many years. The vintage took place with warm dry days and cool nights.

VARIETAL COMPOSITION Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cao
Ratings & Reviews

18/20 Points - Jancis Robinson:
"Very dark crimson with some evolution at the rim. Extremely hedonistic nose. Full, round and ripe. Nice little edge of pepper. Very positive and vigorous. Lots of sweetness on the front palate with neat, dry tannins and no excess of alcohol. Promising for the long term." (10/2004)
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"An under-rated producer, Smith-Woodhouse has turned out a port with an impressively saturated dark ruby/purple color. This powerful port is moderately sweet, forward, rich, and full-bodied, with nicely integrated alcohol and tannin." (30th Oct 1996)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Emits wonderful aromas of crushed fruits, especially berries. Medium-bodied and very sweet with fine tannins and sweet fruit flavors on the finish. An elegant, young vintage Port for relatively early consumption. Best after 2000. 9,000 cases made." - JS (Issue Apr 30, 1997)
