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.
