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.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
