2011 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 18:46 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Attractive nose, with sweet raspberries and turkish delight. Smooth entry with a nice texture. Sweet, ripe fruit spreads over the palate before the massive dry tannins arrive in force bringing a good balance and matching elegance and power. Terrific fruit aftertaste and a long chewy, licorice root finish. 93-95. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
