The 1981 Colheita Tawny Port comes in with 150 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is lovely, dark, burnished and unctuous. From a rather poor vintage year, this still shows well, demonstrating yet again that you can't necessarily assume vintage years control the quality of Colheitas. It doesn't have a lot of depth, but the flavor and texture are very fine, laced with dried caramel and just a touch of brandy. There is that bit of alcohol in the background. The finish is long, though, and filled with flavor. It is bright and lifted.
