2011 Quinta do Tedo

Post by AHB » 23:57 Fri 14 Nov 2014

44,200 bottles produced. Intense red colour, opaque. Very muted nose showing a little roasted meat, juniper and some cheese. Silky on the palate, enormous levels of lovely fresh fruit; ripe tannins grip firmly but never dominate the fruit. Lovely fruit-led palate with delightful gentle aromatics. Dry and attractive tannins dominate the aftertaste but quickly yield to a long finish of fruit and milk chocolate. Delicious and very promising. 93/100. Drunk 25-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
