1996 Quinta de Vargellas vintage port

Post by AHB » 18:07 Sat 29 May 2010

Deep red colour, right into the rim. Marmite on the nose; raisins and rubber. Soft tannins in the mouth, restraied fruit showing some of the beef stock of heat. Good levels of fruit and plenty of interest. Sweet and fruity aftertaste; quite big and with good length. Needs at least another 10 years. 91/100. Drunk 26 May 2010 after 24 hours decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
