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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
