2007 Quinta da Romaneira LBV

Post by AHB » 21:42 Wed 28 May 2014

Bottling date not shown on the label. A slight brown hint to the colour, but a fresh and rather grapey nose, open and attractive. Soft and sweet on the palate, tasting of gently stewed and sweetened fruit. The tannins are soft with the whole combining to give a medium bodied port that is lighter in style than many current LBVs. The aftertaste is gentle and fine, with lingering sweet fruit. This is an attractive and enjoyable port that is one to drink soon - a great cellar defender at the right price! 85/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.

The technical sheet says it was bottled in 2012:

A local shop has this LBV so I'm tempted to get some (hence the research here on TPF and on the Romaneira website).
