1999 Quinta da Leda

Post by AHB » 20:34 Sat 02 Jul 2016

Quinta da Leda from Sogrape. Drunk in poor light but appeared to be deep red with some brick tones. Parma violets and icing sugar on the nose, soft and sweet. Smoothly textured with soft and sweet fruit dusted with icing sugar, full of candied raspberries. Soft tannins give structure and the whole has a nice balance with plenty of fruit. Delicious soft fruit finish with the violets and candied raspberry leading the flavours. A lovely and elegant style of port. 88/100. Drunk 08-Jun-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
