NV Port Society Finest Reserve

Post by AHB » 18:24 Tue 09 Apr 2013

Decanted cleanly, with no sediment in bottle or filter. Deep magenta, opaque centre. Wonderful nose, full of rich and sweet fruit, very inviting. Rich and sweet fruit on the palate, lots of rounded tannins give great structure; delicious floral elements among the fruit - very flavoursome. Full bodied, full flavoured. Slightly hot on the aftertaste, then a long finish full of blueberry and licorice root. Fine port, with all that is needed for 5-10 years of development in the bottle. 88/100. Drunk 29-Mar-13. 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

Sounds like a winner. Never seen or heard of it in USA.

This is produced by Quevedo for the not-for-profit organisation that Tom, Ray and some others set up. And it is pretty good port, but probably just starting to be a bit too acidic. Give it a couple of years and it should get a bit better.
