2007 Quinta do Infantado LBV

Post by JacobH » 14:38 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.

Very little on the nose. In the mouth extra-ordinary sensation entirely unlike other Ports I have tried: the alcohol and tannins seemed simply not to exist. The most expressive of Infantado’s house style I have found. Others will probably hate this, but I thought it was excellent.

Tried this yesterday as well. Indeed virtually no tannins and seems lower on the alcohol. I personally enjoyed this and the Colheita the most. Also their Colheita is somewhat different to 'normal' with more hints of ruby and virtually no interrference of wood.
