1983 Ramos Pinto vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:27 Sat 11 May 2013

50% Tinta 50% Touriga Nacional. Red with bricking on the rim; 60% opaque. Odd on the nose, perhaps with a touch of VA. Soft and silky entry. Plenty of fruit but the grainy tannins provide structure. A second surge of fruit on the mid-palate. Vibrant and lively on the finish. 90/100. 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
