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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
