2012 Dow Senhora da Ribeira

Post by AHB » 12:34 Sun 15 Mar 2015

From Dow. Deep purple, opaque. Soft and subdued blueberry nose; gentle velvet texture with languid blueberry fruit and very powerful - painful - levels of acidity that masks the slow emergence of the tannins. The modest finish is chewy and full of licorice root. 91-93/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
