NV Quevedo Crusted Bottled 2012

Post by AHB » 21:41 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Served blind by Christian Gollnick at Quevedo's winery. Deep red and young looking with an opaque centre and a narrow rim. Lots of fruit on the nose together with some green leaves and capiscum. Plenty of fruit on the palate then a big wave of tannins; the fruit is sweet and pure but the tannin load is powerful. The fruit leads on the aftertaste and culminates in a long and chewy blackberry finish. This was guessed to be a Canais 2008 single quinta port. 87/100. Drunk 28-Sep-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
