2005 Krohn LBV

Post by AHB » 23:38 Thu 26 Feb 2015

Bottled in 2010. Deep red, a hint of bricking in the rim, opaque centre. Strong bouquet of freshly crushed nettles and sugar cane. Initially smooth and round on the palate, medium-bodied; full of fruit on the mid-palate with very pronounced acidity. Big aftertaste and finish, with the finish dominated by bitter blackcurrants and dark chocolate - a great mouthful of a finish. Good LBV. 88/100. Drunk 15-Feb-15. Decanted 5½ hours.
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
