2012 Dalva

Post by AHB » 11:52 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Purple and scarlet with a wide rim. Fragrant nose of fruit and flowers. Satin smooth but rather hollow entry and the first impression is of a rather unpleasant edge of bitterness on the palate. The tannins are modest but the acidity is cutting. Chewy rhubarb finish of impressive length. 89-91/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
