2004 Quinta das Carvalhas

Post by AHB » 23:37 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Drunk at Carvalhas. Lovely dense nose of sweet, slightly jammy fruit. Big, sweet fruit on the palate, full of round and ripe toasted tannins. A lovely complexity with great floral components that complement the tannins. Dry tannins on the aftertaste, a chewy and fruity finish of great length. A surprisingly impressive port from a patchy year. 92/100. Drunk 25-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
