1997 Quinta da Foz vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:44 Fri 23 Apr 2010

Very light colour, pink! Certainly not the colour of a typical 1997. Sweet red licorice on a fragrant nose. Sweet entry, red licorice again with masses of cherry juice and soft milk chocolate tannins. Very forward, mature and very tasty. Gentle and tasty aftertaste. Very advanced and very drinkable. 89/100. Tasted 19 April 2010.

Interesting note as I tasted 1997 Cálem VP about 3 weeks ago. It showed completely differnt. I will put my impressions into the TN section.
