NV Quinta de Baldias 20YOT (bottled 2002)

Post by RonnieRoots » 08:27 Fri 22 Jun 2007

Tasted January 2006:
I was a bit afraid this would not be too good, because of it's long time in bottle (sort of a forgotten bottle...), but no need to worry, it was still great.

Very dark for a 20YOT. Nutty nose with good freshness (citrus peel) and raisins. Not alcoholic at all.

On the palate it is again very nutty and a bit smokey. Also some chocolate and crusted almonds and again some citrus. Initially a bit sharp and bitter on the finish, but some air really smoothened things out. Medium sweet, medium bodied and certainly lovely. 90 points.
