TN An LBV that some experts rated higher than veritable vintage

It was great to taste this and other Port wines at the Instituto da Vinha e do Vinho in Lisbon, thanks to Adegga Wine Market's André Cid Proença and André Ribeirinho.

Ribeirinho is writing the chapter on Portuguese wines for Hugh Johnson's latest edition.

It was a blind tasting in four flights and at least one Norwegian expert rated this wine better than one of the vintage ports in the tasting. I picked it as an overall favorite, and it is available in the UK.

2012 Vinhos Quevedo Porto Late Bottled Vintage – Portugal, Douro, Porto
The surprise of the morning tastings! Pure jam, like fresh home-made marmalade of rich red and black fruits, opulent, with smoky yet tannic characteristics. A certain fire-like aspect on the finish, which is long. And experts preferred it to some of the veritable vintage ports tasted blind. Get to wine-searcher.com now. (94 pts.)
