2005 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 16:56 Wed 18 Jul 2012

Young red colour, opaque. Pure blackcurrant on the nose. Silky entry, with lots of blackcurrant and ripe tannins. Sharp focus from the acidity and a lovely balance. Really good port, drinking nicely and not shut down yet. 91/100. 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

Rr05. Big nose, damson jam. Lovely big fruit. Silky, but the lack of structure of concern.
