2009 Quinta de la Rosa LBV

Post by AHB » 21:45 Wed 28 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Solid red colour, 90% opaque. An astonishing nose, full of medicine and elastoplast - very odd. Sour fruit shows on the palate but the medicinal tone also shows through before brutal levels of tannin dominate. The finish is enjoyable but overall this is not a well balanced LBV. 83/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
