NV Quevedo 20YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 09:45 Wed 18 Jul 2012

Distinctly more red than the Villar d'Allen 20 year old served alongside, and with no green on the rim. Typical tawny VA tone on the nose, attractive but faint. Lighty fruity on the palate, with a fresh and gently acidic centre. Some heat shows on the aftertaste, with a slight bitterness on the very long finish. 86/100. 15-Jun-12.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Qv20Y: much brighter red than the VdA20Y, less nose, more heat mid palate. Sweeter though.
