2011 Rozes

An interesting and unusual maroon/pink colour with a thin transparent rim. Lovely on the nose, very open and inviting. Initially the fruit dominates the palate with a lovely sweetness and then big tannins come through but don’t detract from the fruit. The tannins provide a nice structure. This is a very nice mid-quality port. 88-90/100. 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
