2007 Tedo vintage port

Post by AHB » 01:00 Sat 05 Nov 2011

From a vintage that gave high sugar levels and high acidity. Deep red, magenta rim; opaque. Still showing blueberries on the nose and the characteristic 2007 herbaceousness. Sweet entry, generous ripe fruit with tannins that are slow to show but then take firm control. Tannins dominate the aftertaste, and the finish is of strawberry licorice. EUR 22 ex-cellars or EUR 42 at the cellar door. 90/100. Drunk 15 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
