1988 Quinta de Roriz LBV

Post by AHB » 01:44 Sun 16 Dec 2007

Regular bottling - paired with the cask sample of the same wine. Light colour, orange rim. Perhaps some Serrano Ham on the nose. Nice feel in the mouth with flavours of Turkish Delight and, surprisingly, still some tannins in the wine. The aftertaste appears unexpectedly, is massive, and then stops abruptly. Thoroughly enjoyable and better than the cask sample. Grew better in the glass over the course of an hour to move up from 80/100 to 85/100.
