2011 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 18:44 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Deep colour with a dark purple rim. Little showing on the nose. Restrained fruit on the entry, with assertive tannins that give a good chewiness to the wine, but the fruit is irrepressible. A big finish, long and fruity! This doesn't have the overt lusciousness of the other SFE ports but is very fine. 91-93. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
