2004 Dalva

Post by AHB » 21:22 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Dark red, no purple. Slightly harsh nose with sour red fruit. Sour fruit shows on the palate still slightly blackcurrant-ey but with some secondary fruit flavours beginning to show. Good acidity and soft tannins give a pleasant structure and leads on to a gentle finish of charcoal tannins and jammy fruit. Pleasant, but by no means great, port. 85/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
