2013 Bulas

Post by AHB » 21:30 Mon 23 Oct 2017

Inky purple colour, completely opaque. Gentle on the nose bringing soft blueberry fruit and a delicious herbaceousness. Sweet and elegant onto the palate, a mass of sweet fruit on the mid-palate and the tannins kick in with a vengeance. Dry and chewy on the aftertaste before a fabulous ripe black cherry finish. This is a great powerhouse port which has really settled down in the bottle. 91/100. 24-May-17.
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
