2007 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 21:44 Wed 28 May 2014

Deep inky red and opaque. Comes with an attractive fragrance, floral perfumes and passion fruit. The entry is modest, with restrained fruit but big tannins and searing acidity. The finish is hugely tannic but also has lots of fruit. This is a massive port that needs another decade or two. This is my best experience with this port to date. 94/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
