2000 Ramos Pinto

Post by AHB » 17:52 Mon 26 May 2014

Firm red colour with a slight copper tone; 90% opaque. Very pleasant nose, soft fruit gently stewed in syrup - odd balance on entry; golden syrup and stewed plums before a huge wave of tannins but the fruit never wavers. Powerful acidity. A big, fruity chewy aftertaste. Lovely components, still very youthful and in need of more time to recover its balance. Lots of potential. 93/100. 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
