2007 Savedra

Post by AHB » 00:59 Sat 05 Nov 2011

From Tedo, a small parcel of land that produces fine port grapes. Only 1200 bottles made. Black in colour, witha purple rim. Primary blueberries on the nose. Sweet entry, lovely licorice that stays in place while the tannins rip into the teeth and gums and deaden all the tastebuds. No prisoners here! The aftertaste is dominated by the tannins before a long, sticky finish appears. EUR 32 ex-cellars or EUR 72 at the cellar door. One of the best from the vintage. 94/100. Drunk 15 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
