NV Nova Quinta do Sagrado Fine Ruby

Post by AHB » 21:24 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Made only from grapes grown on the quinta. Deep red with some brick red in the tone; opaque centre. Some Douro baked fruit on the nose; the fruit has some baked characteristics on the palate. There are gentle tannins on the palate along with caramelized - almost tawny - structure to the mid-palate. Soft on the aftertaste and a relatively short finish. 83/100. Drunk 07-Nov-16.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
