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 Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
