NV Berry Brothers Crusted bottled 2007

Post by AHB » 23:12 Tue 06 Jan 2015

Sourced from Dow. Deep red, 90% opaque. Balanced nose of rich fruit yet with some meadow elements. Slightly sharp edged entry, lots of fruit but rather spiky. Rounded tannins with lots of flowers in the mix. Light summer fruits on the aftertaste. Great length. A lovely drink if you like young port. 86/100.

I agree with Alex; very nice uncomplicated port that will last.

My notes simply say: already smooth, yet still some hard tanins in the end
