2009 Pintas vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:23 Sat 11 May 2013

Dark red and opaque. Quite closed on the nose now. Tight and closed on the palate with lots of tannin but little obvious fruit. A big tannic aftertaste leaving very dry lips! Could this possibly have closed down - surely not yet? 86/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
