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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
