2008 Quinta da Romaneira

Post by DRT » 08:41 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

A delicious open nose of blackcurrant jam. Medium weight, smooth, with lots of jammy fruit. Lovely finish, which is long, with layer after layer of sweet black fruits. The fruit dominates this wine completely but it does have a good underlying structure to suggest it will develop into a very nice port. 89 points.
