2007 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 23:31 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Deep purple colour. Lovely floral nose, hugely perfumed. Strangely hollow entry with the first mouthfeel being dominated by the acidity. Fruit is gentle and restrained. Tannins are quite gripping. Dry and gripping start to the aftertaste but they fade slowly to leave a long blackcurrant aftertaste. Quite light compared to other wines from the Symington stable. 85-87. Drunk 28 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
