2007 Quinta da Romaneira LBV

Post by AHB » 12:17 Sun 04 May 2014

Sold by the glass at the Ashmolean Museum restaurant. Firm red colour, has lost any hint of youthful purple but has not yet acquired any bricking. Opaque centre but with a wide transparent rim. Stewed fruit on the nose; soft, gentle and attractive but with a nice fresh sage overlay. Lovely flavour. Very fine texture, great balance and elegance. Plenty of smokey fruit, very soft tannins give a perfect foil to the fruit but carry through right to the end of the soft and delicious finish. Thoroughly enjoyable port that works very well with a roast pork lunch! 88/100. Drunk 4 May 2014.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
