2013 Vasques de Carvalho

Post by AHB » 21:51 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Bottle 5908 of 6129 produced. Deep purple in colour. A hint of fresh grass o the nose. Sweet fruit but the tannins are very aggressive and very green with the acidity searing. The balance of the palate is wrong. The acidity on the finish is huge, and the finish is very, very long. 86-88/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
