2010 Quinta da Gaivosa LBV

Post by AHB » 23:20 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled in 2014. From Alves de Sousa. Sealed with a driven cork. Deep red colour with a narrow rim. Lovely nose, full of sweet blackcurrant, smooth and velvety in texture. The fragrant blackcurrant leads the way but with a terrific balance from the acidity and allows a lovely fragrance to come through on the late palate. A wonderful aftertaste and a very lively finish. Delicious LBV. 91/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
