2003 Quinta do Portal vintage port

Post by AHB » 20:53 Sun 15 May 2011

Closed on the nose, with some damp blackberries. Restrained on the palate, the fruit takes a while to show through but the layers of fruit are fabulous, ending with pure blueberry. Tannins are present but very soft. The fruit dominates the whole of this delicious wine. 90/100.
