2010 Nova Quinta do Sagrado LBV

Post by AHB » 21:22 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Bottled mid 2016. Mature red appearance with a wide rim. Fresh sea salt and iodine on the nose with an odd iodine flavour on entry which gives a dirty taint to the fruit. The dirty fruit with some tannins dominates the mid-palate with the tannins giving good grip and lasting well. Alcohol and burnt sugar dominate the finish. This is either a poor wine or a poor bottle. Not Rated. Drunk 07-Nov-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
