“The NV RP 30 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in February 2020 with a bar-top cork and 139 grams of residual sugar. Showing more complexity and notably more sweetness than the 20 Year also reviewed this issue, this is along the lines of the last release (the 2018) that I saw a while back. As it opens and the sugar blows off, especially a couple of days later, this shows off its complexity even more, but also just a touch of harshness. The key difference is really the complexity versus the freshness—in other words, about what you'd expect. The 20 Year has almost as much concentration and power as this elegant 30 Year, but the 20 Year is fresher and even more elegant (not that the 30 isn't rather fresh for its age), while the 30 Year is far more nuanced. I personally slightly preferred this, as I usually lean toward complexity, but reasonable minds might differ. As noted with the 20 Year, the end-date drinking window is just a placeholder. Barring a cork failure, this should hold well indefinitely—although it does not need aging.

The winery's vintage report for 2019: "The 2019 viticultural year in the Douro Superior was marked by a very long vegetative cycle. High than average temperature during the winter and the beginning of spring got the cycle off to an early start. However, cooler and more stable temperatures during August and September prolonged the final stages of grape maturation, preserving the natural acidity and increasing the aromatic complexity."

For the 2018 DQ Reserva: "The Douro Superior endured a cold winter and a fresh spring. Intense rainfall during the middle of the spring and the beginning of summer lengthened the vegetative cycle of the vine. The crucial months for the maturation, August and September, were hot and dry, allowing the grapes to reach the desired maturation. The profile of the 2018 harvest is elegance and a surprising freshness."”

“Solid, juicy and direct, with a mix of cinnamon, dried cherry, date and green tea notes that are nicely melded, all backed by ginger peel and hazelnut husk on the finish. Serious length too. Drink now. 130 cases imported. — JM”
