2000 Barros vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:34 Fri 23 Apr 2010

Light rim, transparent centre. Quite empty on the nose. Sweet into the mouth but with good tannins drying out the secondary palate. Some bitterness in the mid-palate. The aftertaste is of sweet raspberry jam. Not a great vintage port - perhaps disjointed through being closed. 92/100. Tasted 19 April 2010.
