2012 Duorum Vinha de Castelo Melhor

Post by AHB » 11:58 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Black and opaque appearance. Limited nose, a bit grassy and hints of warm cherries. Smooth in texture, like warm satin and with lovely, ripe black cherry and damson fruit before massive and unending tannins seize the mouth. Big and lively on the finish. This is extremely powerful and impressive. 94-96/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
