2011 Ferreira

Post by AHB » 09:49 Sun 01 Nov 2015

Here ADV posted tasting notes on a number of Ferreira ports and table wines.

Mint and then a wave of massive tannins took over. Dusty plums and chocolate bar expand on the palate. Just when I thought it would be over the top the acidity kicked in and keep it from being too overly sweet. Both the palate and finish lasted what seemed like forever. This has great potential and one of the best examples of a young VP I've had from this house.
