1999 Malvedos

Post by AHB » 10:53 Sun 29 Apr 2012

Too dark to properly make out the colour. Attractive nose, well developed showing plums and sage. Rich and sweet mouthfeel, with spicy acidity on the mid-palate. Rich plum flavours but a dry tannin holds firm through the entire palate. A touch hot on the aftertaste, but this opens to a very attractive and very long dark chocolate and sweet blackcurrant finish. Deliciously pepper! Tasty, but still so young and vigorous. 88/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
