2001 Quinta do Bomfim

Post by AHB » 19:20 Wed 10 Apr 2013

Light red in colour and nearly opaque. Odd nose , vibrant but stewed and floral. Smooth entry, restrained fruit dominated by tannin - light-weight and watery. Patience and work allows the fruit to show but tannins dominate. Dry fruit aftertaste and long finish is the best feature of this port. 85/100. 20-Feb-13 at the New Douro Tasting 2013.
