2011 Quinta da Senhora do Convento

Post by AHB » 21:10 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Very herbaceous nose, bringing crushed endives and salad leaves. Time blew off some excess sulphur to revewal beautiful pure fruit on the palate in a satin smooth body. The tannins are huge but superbly ripe to give a massive palate presence. The aftertaste is an incredibly complex explosion of fruit salad and leads to an immense and complex finish. This is a stunning port and one of the absolute stars of the vintage. 97-99. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

I found this note on the Quinta's website. It only acknowledges "The port forum", rather than the man himself. I found it strangely pleasing that these notes are considered worthy of quotation and an excellent note it is too.
