2014 Quinta da Gaivosa

Post by AHB » 21:09 Tue 03 Jan 2017

From Alves de Sousa. Deep maroon colour. Tanky nose with some odd chlorine tones over fresh baked biscuits. Pure fruit shows on the entry, raw and untainted, followed by a wave of tannin and harsh spirit - not knit together yet. The fruit on the aftertaste is pure and very focused with a good length. 86-88/100. Drunk 07-Nov-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
