1991 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 00:14 Sun 01 Nov 2015

Deep red but with a mature hint; 90% opaque centre. Port smelling to be in early maturity, a lovely nose of red jelly beans and cranberries. Neutral entry, mid-palate showing some sour and modest fruit and lively but well integrated tannins. Pleasant, sweet but saccahrine sweetened jellied fruit with burnt coffee on the finish. Good length. Served blind, this was guessed to be Tesco 1994. 86/100. 27-Oct-15. 25½ hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Rs91, originally ‘DRT’. I noted only “Very young, like an 02 LBV”.

Indeed, this is why I prefer sighted. My effort was obviously directed to the what-is-it question, instead of the of-what-does-it-taste question. We have already had this discussion (Sighted, Blind: advantages, disadvantages), but my preference is illuminated by this TN.
