2013 Rozes Terras do GriFo

Post by AHB » 21:46 Mon 28 Mar 2016

From Rozes. Scarlet in colour, not the purple of some young ports. Grass and seaweed on the nose, a unique combination. Sweet fruit on entry with the lovely fruit balanced by green tannins giving a great balance and a wonderful palate. Huge tannins lead on the aftertaste and give an enormous finish. Very impressive port. 92-94/100. 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
