2011 Quinta do Portal

Post by AHB » 18:06 Sun 18 Aug 2013

An odd cheesy note to this port that was not the glass. Tannins dominate the fruit and the palate, with the strange over-ripe blueberry on the palate giving the same odd cheesy tome. The tannins are firm and in balance on the mid-palate. This is a modest port, but is flawed if this is representative. 83-85. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
