1987 Quinta da Romaneira vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:55 Fri 12 Apr 2013

Mature red-brown colour, with a firm rim. Nicely developed nose showing soft, ripe strawberries. Lovely sweet fruit on impact, concentrated strawberry syrup. Very soft and gentle tannins but slightly flabby and lacking focus. A bit of heat on the aftertaste, lots of dusty tannins and then a long and delicious finish - aniseed balls and strawberries. Very pleasant drinking with plenty of life ahead of it. 84/100. 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
