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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
