2007 Quinta de Roriz vintage port

Post by AHB » 18:19 Thu 11 Apr 2013

Deep scarlet, opaque. Huge perfumed nose. Restrained entry, then a wave of sweet blueberry and firm, gripping tannins. These soften to allow through another wave of fruit, which continues to dominate the aftertaste and finish. A modest bodied and fruit driven port. 88/100. 20-Feb-13 at the New Douro Tasting.
