2011 Pocas Junior

Post by AHB » 22:49 Sun 25 May 2014

Deep maroon in colour with a narrow transparent rim. Somewhat subdued on the nose showing a little fruit. Sweet fruit leads on the impact with ripe, round tannins wrapped in the fruit. The fruit carries a lovely purity. There is an attractive spicy twist to the aftertaste and the chewy fruit finish. Lovely port. 91-93/100. 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
