2012 Bulas

Deep purple and opaque. Gentle nose with green leaves and slightly aggressive blackcurrant. The acidity leads on entry with the tannins dominating the mid-palate and swamping the fruit. Patience with the palate allows the fruit to win though but never quite enough to be perfect. A very intense port. 92-94/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
