About Poças Júnior:  In 1918, a few months before the World War 1 Armistice, Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, who had been born in the heart of the Port Wine hustle and bustle, decided to establish his own company. Manoel Poças was 30 years old and he had some experience in this business. He created a company to sell grape spirits to large Port Wine shippers. Soon afterwards he opened a head office in Vila Nova de Gaia, where they remain to this day. Today, with three Quintas in the best winemaking areas of the Douro Demarcated Region, Poças ensures its total control over the quality of its wines. We are pleased and proud to be able to offer this pre-sale on some of their most outstanding port wines!

Poças Colheita Port 1997 20 year
Douro Valley, Portugal
The enchanter… Medium tawny with some old cherry-fruited ghosts remaining.  Raisin marmalade, with scents of vanilla, walnut, wood and spice. Full bodied dried fruit, well-matched with the wood. Long, soaring and harmonious finish.

During maturation the wine mellows by oxidization similarly to Old Port Wines, and presents characteristics that are unique to the harvest year.

Poças Colheita Port 1967 50 year
Douro Valley, Portugal
Structure and Power…  Tawny and beautiful, featuring groovy greenish-gold highlights. Years of evaporation and oxidation have created a monster of complex and sweet caramel and dried fig which are incorporated with the hardwood, tobacco, and smoky flavors. Full-bodied and involving, well structured, showing an extremely long and very persistent finish with celery seed, citrus peel, spice and almond husk.
Aging: Colheita Port is rare as it is always from a single, well regarded year and comes with many years aging. Unlike the British system of blending wines and years together, Colheitas show well and always retain that special character of the year they were harvested in which will not come again.
Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão
375 ml$149.99 / 750 ml$269.99
