2016 Quinta do Vale Dona Maria

Post by AHB » 10:59 Tue 06 Nov 2018

Deep purple, expressive nose of fresh blueberry. Lovely textured entry, smooth and velvety and a great grip that settles quickly before the fruit comes back quickly. Fruity and perfumed. 88-90/100. Drunk 26-Sep-18.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
