1941 Dalva colheita

Post by AHB » 14:23 Thu 12 Jul 2012

Deep brown centre, amber on the rim. Limited showing on the nose, savoury tones of tomato and cooked onion rather than sweet fruit. Coffee on the entry, with a sharp acidity delivering a good focus; fresh on the palate, but a little light and lacking body. Sharp aftertaste, heat at the start of the finish. A decent port, but difficult to imagine drinking more than one glass of this. 87/100. 15-Jun-12. 3 hours decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
