2011 Alves de Sousa

Post by AHB » 13:42 Fri 06 Mar 2015

Such a deep purple as to be almost black, narrow transparent rim. Slightly cheesey on the nose with the alcohol protruding. Still full of young and primary blueberry. Pure fruit juice entry, rich and lush. Huge levels of beautiful fruit, yet with big and powerful tannins hidden by the clean and perfect fruit. The fruit driven finish is long and delicious. 94/100. Tasted 5 Mar 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
