2007 Waitrose LBV

Post by AHB » 21:45 Sun 12 May 2013

Symington Family Estates. Firm red centre, rose on the rim; 70% opaque. Little on the nose. On the palate this brings sweet fruit in a lightly bodied port with soft and gentle tannins. There is a lovely sweetness to the fruit but also a refined and balancing acidity. Sweet and persistent on the aftertaste. 84/100. Drunk 24 April 2013 at the 2007 LBV post BFT offline.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
