2003 Quinta do Vale Dona Maria LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 23:54 Mon 06 Dec 2010

Bottled unfiltered.

Deep red and opaque. Nosing of soft red fruit and rose petals. Soft in the mouth with restrained fruit and gentle acidity; tannins are restrained. Pleasant aftertaste of moderate length. Not a special LBV and one to be drunk sooner rather than later. 84/100. Drunk 6 December 2010 with no decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
