2008 Quinta de la Rosa LBV

Post by AHB » 22:14 Wed 07 Jan 2015

Bottled 2012. Deep scarlet in colour, 95% opaque. Slightly cheesy on the nose, a cheesiness which comes through on the light bodied palate that is dominated by the tannins before the fruit makes its appearance. This lacks the balance and depth of any of the other ports shown at this tasting. 82/100.

The review thread contains a list of all the ports on show at the 2014 Berry Brothers Port Walk.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

My notes just say this: not filtered, good, mineral, cherry in the nose and the mouth
