2012 Rozes Terras do GriFo

Post by AHB » 12:36 Sun 15 Mar 2015

From Rozes. Scarlet in colour, opaque. Fragrant and lively nose, herbaceous and fruity. Smooth at first but then powerful tannins flood the palate and dominate over the attractive and elegant fruit. This has good balance and focus on the palate. Delicious aftertaste with a touch of cracked pepper heat from the alcohol. This is serious port for the long term. 93-95/100. 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
