2005 Pintas vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:23 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Crushed green leaves on the nose, together with plenty of super-ripe grapes. Very soft and fruit forward; tannins are soft but structural and acidity levels are high. The finish is firm and long and dominated by the chcoclate from the tannins but with a nice cherry tone. 87-89. Drunk 27 June 2009.
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
