2012 Dow Senhora da Ribeira

Post by AHB » 13:26 Wed 21 May 2014

450 cases produced; cask sample. Purple and youthful, opaque. Very gentle on the nose, soft and floral. Soft sweet fruit dominates the first impression on the palate with the acidity and soft tannins powering through on the mid-palate but the fruit drives the finish. Very attractive, with a lovely balance and minerality. 90-92. Tasted 24-Apr-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
