Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Colheita Tawny Port is a typical field blend of grapes like Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Sousão and Tinta Roriz, bottled in 2019 with 117 grams of sugar, 21% alcohol and a long cork. A dry and pointed Colheita, this shows a little brandy to go with its focused and penetrating finish. Surprisingly complex for a young Tawny, showing dried caramel and fig nuances, it is also remarkably gripping. Overall, this is super for a young Colheita. Noval is known for Colheitas and rightly so. These age well, barring a cork failure, but that's not really the point. The end-date drinking window is just a placeholder. Also, don't drink Tawnies too warm.
