2011 Quinta do Passadouro

Post by AHB » 18:05 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Intense centre but not opaque at the rim. Fresh and fruity nose, although subdued. Hollow entry, with good tannins but little of the lush early fruit that many other 2011s are showing. Fruit arrives late on the palate and is austere. The tannins are ripe and the acidity quite pronounced. The aftertaste is pleasant and of good length but the tannins show a hint of greeness. 87-89. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
