2009 Quinta da Gaivosa LBV

Post by AHB » 21:58 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled unfiltered in 2013. Soft red colour, restrained nose showing some attractive soft fruit. Sweet, slightly candied fruit in the mouth; the tannins are strong and not quite integrated to give a slightly odd structure. Delicious fruity chocolate finish of nice length. One to drink or hold. 85/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
