2004 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 21:28 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Deep red colour, opaque centre. A lovely and delicious nose of sweet strawberry and esteva flowers. Smooth and rounded entry, with soft and sweet fruit that has a lovely purity to it along with the streak of minerality that is the hallmark of Roriz. Balanced and floral on the palate with soft tannins and a lovely acidity wrapped around the gorgeous chocolate core. A lovely fruity finish. This is a very fine vintage port which demonstrates the quality of this undeclared year. 91/100. 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
