1997 Quarles Harris vintage port

Post by AHB » 11:21 Wed 24 Dec 2008

Light in colour, still red and with no sign of bricking on the rim. A light nose, minty with redcurrant. Dry in the mouth, the fruit takes a while toshow through but does eventually dominate. A light and elegant style which will reward a further 5 years of cellaring. The aftertaste is sweet and sticky, with lots of dried cherry and cocoa and is surprisingly long for a port with a lesser reputation. 89/100. Tasted 27/11/08.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
