1988 Quinta de Roriz LBV

Post by AHB » 01:44 Sun 16 Dec 2007

Cask sample - paired with the regular bottling of the same wine. Deeper in colour than the regular bottling, but thin and transparent. Nose of sugar cane. Very bland in the mouth, then a curious mix of sweetness and bitterness at the same time, perhaps with a little strawberry jam. Weak aftertaste. 77/100.
