2005 Krohn Retiro Novo

Post by AHB » 21:40 Wed 28 May 2014

Owned by Wiese & Krohn. Lovely youthful red, 95% opaque. Light, pleasant fruit on the nose that is soft and sweet. Sweet perfumed fruit on the palate. Soft tannins but lovely balance and structure. Lovely density of sweet, perfumed fruit. This has a wonderful elegance to it. Attractive now and with 10-20 years of cellaring potential. 91/100. 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
