2008 Quinta da Gaivosa

Post by AHB » 21:56 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled in 2012. From Alves de Sousa. Deep red, a solid magenta; opaque. Delightful nose of sweet, ripe blueberries. Soft and fruity impact; tannins gentle and supporting the fruit. Lingering fruity finish. Lovely balance in an elegant style. 92/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
