2009 Skeffington vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:32 Sat 31 Dec 2011

From a half bottle. Rich magenta colour, totally opaque. Sweet blueberry on the nose; sweet fruit initially on the palate, followed by a quick flash of serious acidity before settling down to a better balance of well behaved, slightly green tannins, violets and beautiful fruit with a dash of black chocolate. Fabulous aftertaste, long and full of Christmas pudding. Delicious port, full of baby-fruit. 90/100. Drunk 31 December 2011; pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
