1987 Quinta de Baldias LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 23:41 Fri 08 Oct 2010

Bottled unfiltered in 1993. Drunk at Prastos e Costas in Regua. Brick red in colour, clearly mature, only 50% opaque. Full of rich Douro bake on the nose, lots of raisins and toffee apple. Rich in the mouth, dried dates and sweet golden sultanas. Deep texture and a great mouthfeel, terrific balance other than a slight touch of heat showing through. Gentle and sweet aftertaste of candied cherry and dried dates. Long and lingering finish. This is a lovely wine, at an elegant and well balanced phase of its life. Delightful drinking today. 85/100. Drunk 24 September 2010.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Bl87LBV: becoming translucent and tawny. Nosing of raisins and mint. Very raisiny to taste. Light, but very long. Later nose lost raisin but gained sugar.
