2001 Quinta de Vargellas vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:38 Sat 11 May 2013

Light red colour, 80% opaque. Closed on the nose. Attractive entry, balanced mix of ripe fruit and tannins that are starting to soften but show a great spiciness. There is a lovely fruit persistence on the long finish. This is still quite young, but starting to drink quite well. 88/100. 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
