2011 Quinta da Romaneira

Post by AHB » 20:12 Mon 02 Jan 2017

500 cases produced, a blend of 90% Touriga Nacional and 10% Touriga Francesa old vines. Fat fruit on the nose but with a slight blue cheese note from the spirit used. The fruit is rich and luscious on entry with blackcurrants dominating the flavours. A huge acidic structure keeps a very fresh focus; the acidity is fierce and hides the tannins but these show as a spicy and peppery aftertaste and a long blackcurrant finish. Rounded and lovely. 90/100. Drunk 26-Sep-16. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
