2003 Quinta do Portal vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:06 Sun 30 Nov 2008

Amongst all the black fruits there was an odd hint of potatoes on the nose. In the mouth the wine was smooth and silky. Huge fruit and a much more tannic structure than the the Portal+. Another good wine - but I prefer the Portal+. Not rated - just too young for me to be able to do so. Drunk 6/11/05 after 4 hours in the decanter.
