2011 Ferreira LBV

Post by AHB » 22:13 Sat 28 May 2016

Bottled 2015. Deep red with a narrow rim. Floral nose with lavender and rose petals. Violets on entry with big tannins and big fruit - and lots of acidity. Great fruit and tannins on the finish. A huge wine, very powerful and very unusual for a Ferreira style port. 91/100. Drunk 22-Apr-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
