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 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
