NV Martinez Finest Ruby port

Post by AHB » 21:03 Sat 03 Apr 2010

Sold by the glass at the theatre bar. Deep red in colour. Little on the nose, but smelling somewhat stewed and jammy. Very simple and straightforward on the palate, plenty of fruit but soft and jammy and with very little structure. Virtually no aftertaste - astonishingly short. Not offensive but there are many ruby ports which bring more pleasure. 76/100.
