Brick red appearance with tinges of brick red and brown on the rim; aroma of mellow old wood with a touch of dried apricots and subdued toffee. The Colheita 1999 shows its age on the front palate but follows through with great freshness and acidity, with a well defined/persistent structure, which leads through to a lengthy spirity finish. - Winery
