2011 Delaforce LBV

Mid red colour, looking to be in the early stages of maturity. An odd smell to the port, baked and full of ammonia. Lacks fruit on the palate and tainted by the odd ammonia tone. Very tannic and dry but the aftertaste and finish are perfectly pleasant. 81/100. 06-Nov-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
