2007 Pintas vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:24 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Yojng red colour, revealing crushed nettles on the nose over a very sharp cranberry. Surprisingly sweet on the palate, with dry tannins everywhere. Plenty of fruit in the mouth and an acidity in proper balance to the other components. Superb blueberry fruit. A dry aftertaste, with a tingling startand then a lovely lingering finish, which fades quickly. 86-88. Drunk 26 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
