1995 Quevedo colheita

Post by AHB » 21:49 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Bottled 2012. Deep red-mahogany in colour, 90% opaque. Furniture polish and beeswax on the nose with some fresh lemon acidity. A touch hollow on entry, hinting at more but not filling in immediately. Clover honey and a lot of acidity on the palate with date and dried figs all over the mouth. A lovely finish, tasty and full of the sweet dates, and a good long finish ending with a mouthful of burnt sugar. 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
