1991 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 23:41 Thu 26 Feb 2015

Deep red, opaque centre. Attractive nose, gentle applemint on the nose. Delicious, gentle and rounded entry. Grows to a lovely minty sweet redcurrant fruit mid-palate with soft tannins and good acidity. Chocolate and bruised plums on the aftertaste, some significant heat on the immediate aftertaste before a very, very long and beautifully balanced finish with lovely toasted tannins. Enjoyable. 85/100. Drunk 13-Feb-15. Decanted 24 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
