2004 Quinta da Romaneira LBV

Post by JacobH » 14:37 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.

Bottled unfiltered in 2010. Young and red with a fresh rapberry nose. Medium bodied entry, with modest fruit and a burnt sugar streak in the core of the flavours. Surprisingly tannic gives a chewy aftertaste dominated by the fruit. Tasty LBV. 85/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
