2014 Quinta do Passadouro

Post by AHB » 21:25 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Deep purple colour, almost black in tone. Faint sweet fruit on the nose, but not much else. On the palate this is restrained at first but the pure, sweet fruit shines through, riding on a wave of tannins delivering great grip amidst the lovely fruit. Delicious finish, chewy and full of fruit. Another winner from 2014, highlighting the consistent feature of this vintage with elegant and pure fruit. 92-94/100. Tasted 07-Nov-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
