2014 Quinta de Sao Jose

Post by AHB » 21:30 Tue 03 Jan 2017

Deep purple colour. Sea-sides and fresh toast on the nose. Modest fruit on entry, pure and clean with a lovely floral tone. Good - if modest - tannins support a fruit focused palate with the fruit at the end being very impressive. Slow to develop, but a lovely contribution to the ports made in the vintage. Hollow aftertaste and a slightly soapy finish. 84-86/100. Tasted 07-Nov-16.
