2002 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port

Post by RonnieRoots » 15:53 Mon 07 Dec 2009

Tasted during a wonderful tasting, hosted and prepared by Gustavo, in the Graham's lodge (26/11/2009)

This port lacks a bit of structure, but is very nice otherwise. It has some lovely, still young, fruit, and that typical Roriz minerality on the nose. It has some power and grip to make it interesting (and let it stand out above and LBV), and a spicy, peppery finish. I wouldn't mind having a couple of these for short term drinking. These were on sale in the Graham's lodge, so might eventually show up on the (British) market at a decent price.
