2001 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 16:55 Wed 18 Jul 2012

An undeclared vintage that was not shipped but some bottles are held in library stock. Firm red in colour, with a centre that is almost opaque. Subdued on the nose, showing some soft black licorice. Sweet and delicious on entry, with soft, sweet brambles and rich blackberry. Soft tannins maintain a nice floral focus. Hot aftertaste, with a dry powdery texture and a long fruit finish. 89/100. 11-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
