2015 Ramos Pinto Ervamoira

Post by AHB » 20:53 Thu 02 Nov 2017

From Ramos Pinto. Purple and with a narrow rim. Restrained nose, showing only a little sour blackcurrant. Very smooth in texture, almost silky at first until the huge tannins grab your tongue. The tannins dominate at first, although there is plenty of ripe, round fruit which works it way to the fore eventually. Huge, chewy aftertaste but the tannins quickly release their grip to leave a lingering and perfumed fruit essence. A really lovely and elegant port. 91-93/100. 23-Jun-17. Pop 'n' pour.
