1989 Quinta da Romaneira LBV

Post by RonnieRoots » 11:17 Thu 21 Jun 2007

Tasted August 2004:
Traditionally made (four years on oak, not filtered). Very light ruby in colour, with light brown edges. The nose is very ripe, predominantly dried figs, along with mild milk chocolate and a touch of freshness (almost neglectable).
It tastes slightly hot and alcoholic. There is a lot af jammy dark fruit and figs, and some butterscotch. Body is rather light, medium finish. A very smooth and round port. Very ripe, but still very enjoyable. At 13,95 euro, I consider this a good buy.
