2007 Quinta do Passadouro

Post by jdaw1 » 18:47 Fri 08 Apr 2011

Tasted at The Big Fortified Tasting, a trade fair in London at Glaziers Hall on Wed 06 April 2011 (Review thread, containing links to other tasting notes). This being a large trade-fair event, tasting notes generally brief.

Pd07. dark red, 90% opaque. Much bigger and more structured than the Pi07. Lots of tannin, but less of that flavoured floral quality.

Quinta do Passadouro 2007 VP
Some fruit present on the nose but the aroma is subtle. In the mouth the driest and most tannic of the 2007s on show. Very hard to access for that reason: needs much time to open-out.

Purple and youthful, but less intense than the Portal 2007 shown alongside. 2007's characteristic violets and leafiness showing on the nose. Restrained fruit on entry, lots of tannin but the fruit does start to dominate late on and grows to impressive levels with deep, black licorice tones underneath. Spicy ginger aftertaste and a long, long finish. Tasty. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
