NV Marks and Spencers Finest Reserve Ruby

Post by AHB » 00:03 Sat 10 Dec 2011

From Quinta & Vineyard Bottlers Lda.

Deep red in colour, opaque and dense looking. Violets and sweet black fruit dominate the modest nose. Fruit is modest, but develops nicely and is supported by evident tannins. The aftertaste is full of fruit and the finish is very long and full of dry chocolate. This port has a great finish, but is light on the nose and a little simple on the palate. 83/100. Not bad for an emergency cellar defender.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
