2007 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 00:19 Sat 01 Feb 2014

Deep purple-red in colour, still opaque. Gentle nose, soft and perfumed - gently attractive. Soft entry with a lovely minerality to the bramble fruit; the tannins have softened and are nicely rounded to give an enduring charcoal support. Lovely fruit finish, great length. A really nice wine, elegant and balanced. 87/100. Drunk at the BBR Port Walk on 28 November 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
