2013 Quevedo

Post by AHB » 14:25 Fri 06 Mar 2015

5,000 bottles produced from grapes source exclusively from Quinta Vale d'Agodinho. Purple in colour, opaque and with a medium transparent rim. Green chicory leaves on top of powerful blackcurrants to deliver a fresh and fruity nose. Crushed chicory on the palate with fresh, sweet blackcurrants and huge levels of fruit. Powerful green tannins grip and hold. Big and chewy finish. This is an impressive port. 90-92/100. 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

Was this a cask sample or post bottling?
