2007 Quinta da Romaneira

Post by jdaw1 » 15:43 Sat 09 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.

Ra07. Red-purple, 90% opaque. Much lighter than the Ra04, more approachable. Very floral, fresh and floral.

Beautiful floral nose, with the streak of herbaceousness that seems to be typical of the vintage. Sweet blueberry dominates the entry and firm tannins support the fruit. Huge fruity aftertaste with fantastic floral elegance. Lovely finish. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
