2011 Quinta do Sagrado

Post by AHB » 21:35 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Quinta do Sagrado. Deep purple in colour with no rim. Subdued nose of blueberries and crushed nettle leaves. A wonderful textured port, so smooth and silky. At first this shows generous ripe fruit then huge tannins dominate the mid-palate but the port never loses its beautiful fragrance. The finish is tremendous. A great port. 94-96/100. 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
