1995 Ferreira VP

Post by StevieCage » 22:04 Mon 08 Oct 2007

1995 Ferreira VP â€‟ now this smells young. I mean, REALLY young. The palate is not much different: full, rich and primairy. A good balance, but also a bit “angular†, if you know what I mean. Supple finish with yummy red cherries, lingering and warm.
I was impressed â€‟ really impressed â€‟ with this Port. A shame that Ferreira is so hard to find over here: this would be great to revisit in 5, 10, 15 years.

Nice dark colour, young, even still quite pink at the rim. Spicy nose, that otherwise doesn't give much. Ripe and round tasting, with red cherries, and other ripe fruit, some almond bitterness. Still pretty young; primary and fresh. Good structure, fine glass of port.
