1997 Quinta das Carvalhas

Post by AHB » 23:36 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Drunk at Carvalhas. Herbaceous leaves and dark cherry fruit on the nose, but subdued. Light bodied on the palate, which is poised and acidic. The palate certainly has plenty of acidity and tannins! Dry tannins and light acidic fruit fight on the lengthy finish. This will probably evolve to be an attractive and elegant wine. 87/100. Drunk 25-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
