The 2017 Vintage Port Quinta do Seixo is a blend of 42% Touriga Franca, 31% Touriga Nacional, 15% Old Vines and Tinta Roriz and Sousão for the rest. It comes in with 108 grams per liter of residual sugar. Sandeman may not have made a declaration in 2017, but this single quinta is pretty fine, better than or equal to many who did. Powerful, pointed and inky black, not to mention full of flavor, this is beautiful. The mid-palate is not particularly fleshy, and might be a bit lean, but everything else is super. Some aeration did not help it along much—it remained powerful and penetrating, rather closed. This is very fine, but it does need to demonstrate some ability to gain more expressive fruit in the cellar. It may yet be entitled to an uptick. Be prepared to cellar it a bit, though. This was only in bottle about six weeks when seen.

95 pts Wine Spectator

Warm and lush in style, featuring blueberry and açaí berry reduction flavors that glide over melted licorice and melted chocolate notes, revealing a seductive fruitcake hint on the rich finish. The grip of the vintage hangs in the background, resulting in a showy, fruit-bomb style. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Sousão. Best from 2032 through 2050
