2007 Duorum

Post by JacobH » 14:41 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 subdued nose. Some very distant spices and blackcurrants. Quite strong, slightly harsh tannins. Somewhat disappointing.

Deep red colour and a magenta rim. Restrained nose, showing a hint of menthol and lots of Turkish Delight. Smooth entry, restrained blueberry then big tannins with a peppery bite - in fact, the tannins are huge! Mouth puckering aftertaste, which does subside to allow a fresh blueberry to emerge from the long finish. A big wine! 91/100.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
