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 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

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