2011 Quinta do Vale Meao

Post by AHB » 21:17 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Restrained fruit, showing a little fruit. Sweet fruit on the palate, but also the bitterness that one or two ports from this vintage have shown. Powerful tannins which eventually relent and allow the port to come back into balance. The tannic grip comes back on the aftertaste with a good intensity of flavours. 88-90. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
