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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
