2002 Churchill crusted

Post by Rubby » 23:19 Sat 10 Jan 2009

decant +3 :
Quite a large amount of lumpy sediment.
Opaque with dark red rim. Interesting nose of raspberry, orange and freshly cut hay. Medium sweet and fleshy in the mouth but with a rather dull palette of overripe cherries and a hint of marzipan. Not much depth there.
Reasonably long aftertaste with a tiny amount of tannins.

A decent but rather dull Port with a nose promising more than the palette delivers.
I am not convinced.
