2011 Taylor Vargellas Vinha Velha

Post by AHB » 21:18 Sun 18 Aug 2013

310 cases. Magenta, not violet in colour. Bramble fruit on the nose - inviting and sweet. So silky and attractive in texture. Very fruit dominated but with a ripe, black chocolate tannin core that controls and focusses the wine. An immense finish of huge length. This is astonishingly good port. A contender for wine of the vintage at this tasting. 97-99. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
