2008 Ferreira LBV

Post by AHB » 21:49 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 2012. Deep and youthful red, 90% opaque. Showing little on the nose, alcohol and then some fruit. Lovely textured fruit, smooth and mouthfilling. Big tannins grip and give a firm structure, dominating through to the aftertaste before purple fruit and dark chocolate takes over for the long finish. Very good LBV. 89/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
