2004 Quinta da Romaneira LBV

Post by DRT » 22:33 Mon 28 Mar 2011

Bottled 2010.

"Unfiltered" - but absolutely no sediment whatsoever. None.

D +1hr Dark ruby in the glass but noticeably transparent whilst pouring. Milk chocolate nose. Medium weight, quite hot entry. Stewed red fruits, very dry in the mid palate. Lots of tannins in the finish, but mostly heat.

I need to persuade myself to leave some of this for tomorrow in case it turns good.

I've got the VP one opened for 2 weeks now and it's definitely enjoyable.

It's got a fine sweet wet tobacco flavor going on and the heats completely gone.

Alot of fine silty sediment has been thrown off after I've filtered it 2 weeks back.

D+24 hours

Vanilla on the nose. Better than yesterday's milk chocolate. Feels thicker in the mouth now but still predominantly stewed fruits and very dry tannins. Quite hollow in the finish but has lost lots of the heat now so is more drinkable.

Not great. A very nice man from Romaneira told me today that the 2005 LVB is much better than this :wink:
