2008 Dow's Quinta do Bomfim

Post by AHB » 22:01 Mon 05 Jul 2010

Acidic and herbaceous nose. Sweet fruit in the mouth but a brutal monster of a port, strongly tannic but with plenty of lavender and dark cherry fruit. The fruit follows on to the aftertaste and finish. A brutal example of young port, but with so much going on - quality which will last generations. 88-90/100. 5 July 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
