2005 Quinta do Vale Dona Maria LBV

Post by AHB » 23:56 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Bottled 2009. Very red in colour. Light and open on the nose, very floral and with a slight bitterness. Very sweet in the mouth with plenty of fruit and some strong tannins. The fruit is ripe and sweet and balances the tingling acidity and tannic structure very well. A big aftertaste with great length. 92/100. Drunk 27 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
