4 /5

Cor vermelha acinzentada, com aromas a frutos silvestres, amora preta. Na boca, os sabores são confirmados, com taninos e notas sutis de baunilha. O sabor residual é persistente e bom.

4 /5

A very nice 2008 Colheita Port that has a deep red colour with brownish glaze. The aroma is rich in ripe fruit with a touch of spice and vanilla notes. In the mouth it is fresh and balanced with a presence of silky tannins. It has a long and refreshing finish making it ideal for that after dinner treat.

The Messias Colheita 2005 had a very deep color. I drank it several day after I first opened it and, even though the days, it tasted good.
It would have been better with meat.
This wine was recommended by a friends of us.
I always ask for it when I go to the restaurant.
A classic.
