1997 Pocas Junior

Post by AHB » 20:49 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Confraria dinner. Appearing to be maturing, some bricking showing. Nosing of chocolate digestives and sous bois. Nice palate, lots of tannins and sweet fruit. Good structure and good youth. Chalky tannins drive the finish with plenty of lingering and pleasant sweet fruit. 86/100. 22-Jun-17. Decanted 12 hours.
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
