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 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
