2013 Quinta do Pego

Post by AHB » 21:27 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Purple and carmine in colour. Similarly to the Churchill Gricha, this youthful port has a slight cheesiness to the nose - a cheesiness which comes through on the entry. Powerful tannins and adequate fruit show reluctantly on the mid-palate. The aftertaste is good and the finish better. 90-92/100. 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
