2011 Pintas

Post by AHB » 14:56 Sat 02 Nov 2013

One of the winners from the vintage. This is a very impressive 2011 vintage port. Powerful blackcurrant nose that combines both attractiveness and elegance, inviting you to sniff again and again. On the palate this has both richness and density of fruit giving a full-bodied palate. The tannins and acidity are balanced and ripe and perfectly complement the fruit. The finish is long and powerful and runs through several phases. This is extremely good port. 94-96.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
