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 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
