1987 Quinta da Tua vintage port

Post by AHB » 17:06 Wed 18 Jul 2012

Cockburns. Warm red, bricking throughout and with a paling rim; 80% opaque. Attractive nose of cold roast beef and redcurrant jelly - very fresh and focused. Balanced entry, flavoursome and mouthfilling with considerable fruit, concentrated and delicious. The sweet fruit is focused with a lovely acidity and supported by great complexity. Mouthwatering - slightly hot - aftertaste and finish of wonderfully concentrated crepe suzette. Delicious. 92/100. 12-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
