2011 Quinta da Senhora do Convento

Post by AHB » 21:43 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Deep purple with no rim; subdued on the nose. Smooth and intense on entry with a velvet texture. Intense sweet violets and blueberries do their best to hide the tannins, but the tannins are clear and give a lively pepper dust finish. A wonderful mouthful of port, as good now as it was when first released. 95/100. 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
