2005 Quinta da Romaneira

Post by AHB » 14:19 Fri 06 Mar 2015

Ruby red with early browning. Attractive nose of bruised red plums. Neutral entry with some gentle fruit but surprisingly light on the palate. The tannins are firm and powerful compared to the fruit but combine to give a disappointing palate. The aftertaste is fragrant and fruity. A very elegant and light style of port. 84/100. 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
