1999 Ferreira VP

Post by Roy Hersh » 06:31 Sat 28 Jun 2008

1999 Ferreira Vintage Port - Dark crimson color with full opacity. Lush notes of plums, licorice, tobacco and chocolate aromas. Medium weight, soft and chewy with dusty tannins and plenty of acidity. Delicious dark cherry and chocolate flavors with a rather foursquare mid-palate. Solid length to the finish and just a touch of heat. This Ferreira is a graceful VP that is easy to approach today and should age well for up to 15 more years. 87 points ~ 6-25-08


P.S. Last time I posted a TN here, it became quite a cause celebre. I truly hope this will be viewed in a more positive, accepting light. :wink:
