Tasting notes: Primarily a blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca varietals. Juicy, intense, and complex, it bursts with ripe blackberry and notes of chocolate on a texture of crushed velvet Worth knowing: Acquired in the late 19th century, Quinta de Vargellas is the most prominent of Taylor Fladgate’s estates and the source of the first-ever single-quinta port. The Vinha Velha version, produced only in the best years from the oldest, lowest-yielding vines on the property, is so rare that it was practically a family secret.
