2011 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 23:11 Sun 25 May 2014

Deep purple still, opaque. Soft in texture with a silky entry. The fruit shows very well but the tannins are immense and dominating. There is a nice depth to the fruit and a very chewy finish that carries lots of ripe tannins and modest fruit but has immense length. This has terrific potential but needs several decades. 92-94/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Is that meant to be 'sulky'?

Thank you, should have been "silky".
