Whilst the lagar samples of the '14 may have looked really good, negative traits might easily have surfaced over the subsequent months..
Very true. I'm sure it is difficult to get a true impression of a VP from freshly bottled juice, so I have no doubt that things can change over that first year in bottle. It may not have been the original reason for delaying declaration for 18-30 months, but I'm sure it proves useful now that it is required standard practice.

There have been a few new additions made to the list of 2015 ports, but the main reason for this latest post is to share a summary of an interesting conversation I had with the team from Vinko Vinhos. This is the company behind Barao de Vilar, Maynard, Feuerheerd and Palmer (and a few other names).

Vinko have decided to declare the 2015 vintage. They have made and bottled two blends. Barao de Vilar and Maynard are the same blend with different labels while Feuerheerd and Palmer are also the same blend but different labels.

Vinko also make a really good LBV, around 100,000 bottles per year (when made). About 40% of the volume goes to the UK market — almost entirely to Aldi.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994

Thank you. The list on the first post has been updated.

Incidentally, as and when I come across ports from other vintages 2005 or later which do not appear on the relevant vintage lists thread, I am also updating those older lists. If anyone does encounter an older vintage not on the list (or possibly not on the list) either post it on the thread or drop me a PM.
