2011 Quinta da Romaneira

Post by AHB » 22:44 Fri 21 Feb 2014

From a half bottle. Opaque, youthful purple. Gentle, sweet blueberry fruit on the nose with a lovely herbaceousness. Initially subdued on entry, but a powerful acidity takes hold under a generous and opulent fruit. The tannins are ripe and dry, like toasted cocoa beans. The whole giving a wonderful complexity. The acidity distorts the aftertaste, but leads to a long sweet blueberry and licorice finish. Fine port. 90/100. Drunk 29-Jan-14. Decanted 24 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
