2011 Quevedo

Post by AHB » 18:09 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Distinct tone of petrol on the nose, almost like an old German Riesling! Fruit is slow to arrive on the palate, but is sweet and wrapped in powerful tannins but there are some pear drops that could indicate a slight VA. Dry tannins dominate the long finish. A mid-weight, mid-term port. 89-91. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.

Given that the above tasting note is so inconsistent with my previous encounter with this port and with the views of others I trust, I intend to retaste this port in the Autumn of 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
