2013 Churchill Gricha

Post by AHB » 13:27 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Churchill's single quinta. Deep purple with a purple rim. Cheesy nose, mixing fruit and stilton - reminding me of the nose of the Churchill 2011 in the first few months. I wonder if Churchill use a unique spirit that takes longer to integrate than most producers. The port is harsh on entry, full of powerful acidity and tannins mixed with ripe fruit. A nice blackberry finish full of ripe tannins. 87-89/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
