1997 Quinta de la Rosa Colheita

Post by angeleyes » 21:42 Tue 01 Dec 2009

Bottled 2008, gifted to me in January 2009. Not sure why it's sat around for 11 months!

Light marzipan nose, some other nice smells I can't put me finger on. Red-brown fading to the rim. In the mouth, warm texture but fairly light. Balanced sweetness, prominent acidity and heat which I think works - refreshing, and gives a lingering spicy finish, will pop in the fridge to test. I'd say on par with a decent 10 year old tawny. Good stuff.
