2005 Krohn Retiro Novo

Post by AHB » 21:41 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Wiese & Krohn. Deep red in colour with a narrow rim and an opaque centre. Little shows on the nose other than a faint hint of menthol. Sweet strawberries dominate the entry, with some sherbet coming through on the mid-palate. But the fruit is so sweet as to give an impression of rather a flabby port. There is a bit of acidity to provide some balance and there are some soft tannins but overall this is not a well balanced port. The aftertaste is better with the tannins showing gently and a sweet strawberry sherbet finish. Too sweet and unbalanced for my taste. 83/100. 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
