2011 Quinta do Portal

Post by AHB » 18:07 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Massively over-ripe fruit on the nose, almost blue cheese-like in its intensity. The fruit on the palate is rich, sweet and lush. Some pear and bananna with powerful tannins. Sweet fruit on the aftertaste and a great length finish of dark chocolate. 90-92. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
