2013 Quinta do Vale Meao

Post by AHB » 21:48 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Very dark crimson, intensely coloured with a narrow rim. Subdued on the nose, soft fruit and gentle esteva. Initially slow to make an impact on the palate. Very tannic with modest fruit but air reveals powerful tannins, dark chocolate and black cherry. Huge tannins swamp the fruit but there is a good level of acidity. The aftertaste is big and full of blackcurrant skins, an immense finish. Another 2013 port for the cellar. 89/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
