2011 Duorum

Muted nose, showing some minted fruit. Restrained at first on the palate, but powerful acidity and tannins dominate over the delicate and perfumed fruit. The black chocolate tannins continue to dominate the aftertaste and finish. Rather a blackstrap style of a port that should be long-lived; combining power and balance well. 92-94. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
