2000 Quinta da Eira Velha vintage port
Posted: 10:14 Sun 14 Feb 2010
Bottled by the Symingtons for Sainsbury's Taste The Difference range. Decanted through coffee filter paper. Deep red and opaque centre. Nose full of blackcurrants. Silky texture, full of blackcurrant fruit and with soft tannins hidden behind the fruit. Lovely fresh blackcurrants all over the mouth with a dark chocolate core. A warm aftertaste, which fades to a long finish of dark chocolate and dried blackcurrants. Very tasty - but also far too young. Tasty port for the future. 88/100. Drunk 11 Feb 2010 after 18 hours decanting.
