Medium amber color with a greenish tinge on the rim. Seductive and understated scents of mandarin orange, wood smoke, clove, vanilla extract and candied hazelnuts deliver a memorable bouquet. There's a bit of a hot streak that blew off about two hours after it was poured and the intensity played out in the mid-palate with flavors of maple, toffee, brown sugar and tart grapefruit, providing balance to the sweetness. This 1966 is a stylish well-aged Colheita that shows class and symmetry, supported by lip smacking citric acidity and a hedonistic mouthfeel. A standout best bottle of Messias Port I've ever tasted.
