1982 Ramos Pinto

Post by AHB » 00:15 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Drunk at Quinta de Vale d'Agodinho with Oscar and Claudia Quevedo, Luis Sottomayor and Rob Coombes. Deep brown in colour, opaque. Unpleasant and dirty on the nose - a defect in the alcohol perhaps? Poor palate, dry and dirty like biting into wood. Milk chocolate and dry, lacking in fruit. Dry on the finish with some soft chocolate. Not offensive, but not attractive. Surely a flawed bottle? 80/100. Drunk 23-Sep-14. Decant N/K.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

I think something extra made it into the final blend.
