1997 Quinta do Tedo

Post by AHB » 23:40 Sat 15 Nov 2014

Deep red with a bricking rim. Cherry, marzipan and mint on the nose. Quite pronounced. Fruity, structured entry with high levels of acidity that sear their way through the mature and slightly stewed fruit. Powerful tannins that fade slowly to reveal the fruit in its full glory. Wonderful cherry finish; great length and delicious aniseed finish. Very enjoyable. 88/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
