1997 Ramos Pinto vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:29 Sat 11 May 2013

Young red colour, with just a hint of bricking on the rim. Still youthful on the nose with lots of fruit. Lots of fruit on the palate too, softened a little with age and surprisingly approachable. Lots of fruit backed up with round, ripe tannins and a fine aftertaste. This has more fruit than the 1994! A great elegant style of port. 92/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
