2008 Quevedo - Quinta Vale D'Agodinho

Post by AHB » 10:22 Sat 09 Oct 2010

Very young, the bright purple of a new release. Typical nose of a new vintage port with youthful blueberries and violets. Beautiful texture, with good body and weight and dominated by pure primary flavours. The tannins are mostly hidden by primary fruit - an incredibly sweet blueberry. The aftertaste and finish are a little hollow - but that could be because the cheeks are numb from the tannins! Served blind, I guessed this to be the VP from 2008. 94/100. Drunk 27 September 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

QvA08, served blind. ‟Stupidly purple”. The taste merely recorded as ‟big and totally young”. The bigness really impressed me.

This prompted the conversation that resulted in www.jdawiseman.com/papers/port_and_wine ... _2008.html.
