2005 Quinta do Passadouro LBV (unfiltered)

Post by JacobH » 14:32 Thu 14 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.

Some fruit on the nose but, overall a very soft sensation with a slight amount of rancio. Fine, but slightly unexciting.

Traditional, bottled 2009. Closed nose; some mint and herbiness. Nice texture on impact; good ripe blackcurrant dominates before the grippy tannins fur the teeth. Lovely fruit aftertaste and violet cream finish. Delicious, but would reward some time. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
