2008 Quevedo - Quinta Vale D'Agodinho

Post by AHB » 22:06 Mon 05 Jul 2010

Sharp on the nose, aggressive blackcurrants with a twist of mustard leaves. Incredibly thick texture, by far the thickest of off the 2008 samples tasted. Mouth-filling sweet fruit, deep and concentrated; rich and with balanced but pronounced tannins. Massive fruit on the aftertaste, big finish full of dark chocolate and ripe blueberries. 92-94/100. The standout port from the vintage, the one every port-lover should add to their cellar. 5 July 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
