2003 Quinta do Portal Plus vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:25 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Young and densely coloured, still deep purple. Full nose, big and full of blackcurrant. Slow to develop in the mouth, showing strong and quite fierce tannins but with a reasonable amount of fruit to balance it out. Lovely floral elements and a lavendar flavour. The aftertaste is mouthfilling and full of flavour, and lasts a good time. A relatively gentle wine, with the ability to age for some years to go. 88/100. Drunk 26 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
