1945 Armandio

Post by AHB » 20:43 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Tasted at the Confraria dinner, courtesy of Dirk Niepoort. Brick red, 40% opaque. A gentle nose of raisins and rhubarb; lovely thick texture with some gentle fruit on the palate with golden sultanas, dried figs and raisins showing, Gentle and lingering sweet raspberry aftertaste leading to a great finish. Despite the age, this port still has lots of fruit left. 88/100. 22-Jun-17.
