The 2003 Colheita Port, bottled in 2015 with a long cork, is a blend of 50% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz and 10% Tinta Barroca. It comes in with 120 grams per liter of residual sugar. Very dark and brandy-laced, this is not as lively as some young-ish Tawnies, but it is showing the big fruit and good concentration of the vintage. It lingers nicely and finishes with some tension. It is a relatively big boy for a young Colheita, but it is just not quite as fresh. Don't drink it too warm.

Messias, founded in 1926, is still family owned. It produces wines in several regions, but its home base is Bairrada. They have a strong Douro presence, though, including Port. Winemaker João Soares is making some nice stuff here these days. He is also a partner at V. Puro in Bairrada.
