2014 Quevedo

Post by AHB » 22:47 Tue 24 May 2016

Vintage port not yet approved by the IVDP and intended for private consumption only (Oscar's son having been born in 2014).

Deep red in colour with a narrow rim. A lovely fruity nose of sour cherries. Sweet cherry fruit on the palate with gentle tannins that give a good core to the wine and support some nice floral elements on the late palate. The acidity shows briefly on the aftertaste, then a huge fruit, black chocolate and floral wave breaks into the mouth and holds for an enormous amount of time. This is an elegant port with a huge finish. 89-91/100. Pop 'n' pour.
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
