2011 Skeffington

Post by AHB » 21:10 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Nose shows fresh and focused blackcurrants at first, but these fade quickly over a few days. Ripe fruit, sweet and with a lovely balance and soft structure; some delightful floral elements appear on the late palate. The rich aftertaste shows the tannins on the fine fruity finish. 91-93. 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
