2008 Dalva LBV

Post by AHB » 21:45 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Medium red with some maturity showing in the colour. Delicate and floral on the nose, pronounced and attractive. Lovely texture with soft, ripe fruit before pretty big tannins grab hold. Decent body, if slightly tannins. Long and big finish with wonderful fruit and chewy tannins. There is a delicious sweetness to the fruity finish. 85/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
