2011 Dalva

Post by AHB » 08:34 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Delicate fruit nose, with plenty of sour berries. Light to medium-bodied with a sharp edge and bitter espresso tannins with the fruit having an attractive perfume on the late palate. Light honey aftertaste and a soft, dry finish. An early drinking elegant port. 84-86. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
