2011 Quevedo LBV

Post by AHB » 12:24 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. 95% opaque with a red core and a hint of scarlet on the rim. Served slightly warm the alcohol on the nose gives a minty / eucalyptus edge to the lush blueberry. A wonderful texture, as smooth as silk. Big tannins grip but are a lovely toasted and roasted nutty element to the luscious sweet fruit. The primary fruit leads on the aftertaste and the enormous finish. This is a huge LBV, perhaps Quevedo's best yet, and will reward time in the cellar. 92/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
