2011 Smith Woodhouse

Post by AHB » 21:12 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Faint on the nose, a little minty fruit. Wonderful texture on the palate, very smooth and luscious. The fruit arrives before the tannins with most of the structure coming from the acidity. The aftertaste is long and cedary. Nicely balanced port. 90-92. 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
