1999 Casa Ferreirinha Callibriga Douro

Here ADV posted tasting notes on a number of Ferreira ports and table wines.

Lots of forest and mushrooms on the nose. The palate had a mix of young and fresh fruit and some older notes mixed in. While the tannins are now starting to soften the acidity is still there. While it's in a good spot now, it should easily hold for another 4-5 years no problem. Then again, why wait!
92 Points.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
