2007 Quinta do Portal vintage port

Post by AHB » 20:54 Sun 15 May 2011

Pure primary purple. Violets and blackcurrants leap out of the glass. Violet cream fruit dominate the palate but tannins fur the teeth. Stunning levels of fruit, pure and ripe. Tannic aftertaste with a gorgeous fruit undertone of ripe Victoria plum. Fabulous. 91/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
