2007 Ferreira vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:53 Mon 16 Jul 2012

Deep purple, with a solid rim. Closed on the nose, but with some sour cherry notes showing. Big impact on the palate, with lots of sweet and ripe fruit. Assertive tannins grip the mouth firmly and give a good counter-balance to the fruit. The aftertaste is huge, with a mass of dark chocolate and a very long finish. Terrific port. 91/100. 13-Jun-12.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Fr07. Purple, 99% opaque. Very sweet, dominated by grape flavours. Rather lighter than its age would suggest.
