This wine has a lively, young, vibrant color. It is thick and dense, showing whole red fruit, typical of the Douro region. In the glass, it has thick droplets that demonstrate power and softness. On the nose, the first impression is still, yet promising. Notes of blackberry, currant, cherry, raspberry, black plum, jam, and a mixture of fruit slowly reappear, giving the wine complexity and presence. In the mouth, the attack is full, supported by whole delicate tannins and signs of a long life. The 2000 vintage is ready to consume now, or can be cellared for more complexity.

Wine AdvocateThis seductive, sexy, accessible, forward vintage port boasts a dense purple color as well as copious quantities of jammy red and black fruits intermixed with smoke, earth, and licorice. Additional definition and firmness should emerge with time in the bottle. Sweet, layered, and full-bodied, it will be at its finest between 2007-2020.

Wine EnthusiastShowing slightly better than it did a year ago when last reviewed, the 2000 boasts sweet plum fruit, ample earthiness and refined spice flavors. As vintage Ports go, it's not the biggest or most concentrated, but shows a fine sense of harmony and balance.

Wine SpectatorPretty young Port. Aromas of crushed berries and orange peel, with a hint of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, slightly sweet, with plenty of ripe fruit and firm tannins. Medium finish. Better than from barrel. Best after 2007.
