2011 Ferreira

Post by AHB » 08:42 Sun 18 Aug 2013

A nose which changes significantly over a few days, morphing from being full of really ripe melon to an earthy mineral scent. Thick texture, sweet impact with generous earthy fruit and very dry tannins. Very dry cocoa finish of good length. This is punishingly tannic today and will not be an early drinker! 91-93. Drunk over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
