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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
