2012 Quinta de Sao Jose

Post by AHB » 12:33 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Quinta de Sao Jose, from Joao Brito e Cunha Lda. Purple, young-looking and 99% opaque. Floral and fruity on the nose; fruity entry with tannins that are initially soft and which gain presence to end up being quite powerful and dominating. There are some lovely floral edges to the fruit and the overall impression is of a nicely constructed mid-weight port. The finish is good and there is an interesting twist of honey towards the tail end of the finish. 90-92/100. 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
